Sudden and disruptive climate change exploring the real risks and how we can avoid them by Michael C MacCracken ( )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While changes in emissions and atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases are projected to be slow and smooth the intensity and impacts of climate change on the environment and society could be abrupt and erratic. Surprising and nonlinear responses are likely to occur as warming exceeds certain thresholds inducing relatively rapid and disruptive changes in the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets precipitation intensity and patterns coastal inundation the occurrence of wildfire the ranges of plant and animal species and more. Written by a transdisciplinary group of internationally respe

Scarred lands & wounded lives the environmental footprints of war ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In all its stages, from the production of weapons through combat to cleanup and restoration, war pollutes land, air and water, destroys biodiversity, and drains natural resources. Yet the environmental damage of war and preparation for war is routinely underestimated, underreported, even ignored. The environment remains war's 'silent casualty.'"--Container

Beyond mitigation potential options for counter-balancing the climatic and environmental consequences of the rising concentrations of greenhouse gases by Michael C MacCracken ( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Global climate change is occurring at an accelerating pace, and the global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are forcing climate change continue to increase. Given the present pace of international actions, it seems unlikely that atmospheric composition can be stabilized at a level that will avoid "dangerous anthropogenic interference" with the climate system, as called for in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Complicating the situation, as GHG emissions are reduced, reductions in the offsetting cooling influence of sulfate aerosols will create an additional warming influence, making an early transition to climate stabilization difficult. With significant reductions in emissions (mitigation) likely to take decades, and with the impacts of projected climate change-even with proactive adaptation-likely to be quite severe over the coming decades, additional actions to offset global warming and other impacts have been proposed as important complementary measures. Although a number of possible geoengineering approaches have been proposed, each has costs and side effects that must be balanced against the expected benefits of reduced climate impacts. However, substantial new research is needed before comparison of the relative benefits and risks of intervening is possible. A first step in determining whether geoengineering is likely to be a useful option is the initiation of research on four interventions to limit the increasing serious impacts: limiting ocean acidification by increasing the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and upper ocean; limiting the increasing intensity of tropical cyclones; limiting the warming of the Arctic and associated sea level rise; and sustaining or enhancing the existing sulfate cooling influence. In addition, in depth consideration is needed regarding the governance structure for an international geoengineering decision-making framework in the event that geoengineering becomes essential.
