The forgiving air : understanding environmental change by Richard Somerville( )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and Japanese and held by 2,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Forgiving Air is an authoritative, up-to-date handbook on global change. Written by a scientist for nonscientists, this primer humanizes the great environmental issues of our time - the hole in the ozone layer, the greenhouse effect, acid rain, and air pollution - and explains everything in accessible prose. A new preface takes into account developments in environmental policy that have occurred since publication. Highlighting the interrelatedness of human activity and global change, Richard Somerville stresses the importance of an educated public in a world where the role of science is increasingly critical

The development of atmospheric general circulation models : complexity, synthesis, and computation( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this volume is to describe the development of atmospheric general circulation models. We are motivated to do so by the central and essential role of these models in understanding, simulating, and predicting the atmosphere on a wide range of time scales. While atmospheric general circulation models are an important basis for many societal decisions, from responses to changing weather to deliberations on responding to anthropogenic climate change, the scientific basis for these models, and how they have come about and continue to develop, are not widely known. Our objective in editing this volume is to provide a perspective on these matters"--

"Professors of Foresight" : Finding a Place for the Future in Journalism Curricula by Richard Somerville( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of the future has grown into a valued tool for business planners, government, and nongovernmental organizations, as well as for many areas of the social sciences. Yet despite the need for reporters and editors who can inject foresight into the news--and despite studies showing that the disciplined use of "futures thinking" not only can be a useful tool for journalists in a rapidly changing world, but a vital one--the use of futures studies in the teaching of journalism and mass communications is found to be an underused resource. The time is ripe for rethinking curricular change. Hendrickson and Tankard (1997), for example, are exploring classroom techniques for using general systems theory. According to their research "Teaching future reporters to think of news events and issues in systems terms may be one approach to expanding the news frame." (Contains 40 references; an appendix outlines a proposed course, "Journalism and the Future.") (Nka)
