Avoiding dangerous climate change by Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the most recent findings from the leading international scientists that attended the Avoiding Dangerous Climate Change conference in 2005 hosted by the UK Government. The topics addressed include critical thresholds and key vulnerabilities of the climate system and impacts on human and natural systems
Earth system analysis for sustainability by Dahlem Workshop on Earth System Analysis for Sustainability( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book presents the complete story of the inseparably intertwined evolution of life and matter on Earth, focusing on four major topics: long-term geosphere-biosphere interaction and the possibility of using extrasolar planets to test various geophysical hypotheses, the Quaternary Earth System's modes of operation, current planetary dynamics under human pressure, and transition to global sustainability."--Jacket
The science of disasters : climate disruptions, heart attacks, and market crashes by Armin Bunde( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are there universal laws governing the persistence of weather, and is it possible to predict climate transitions as generated by natural or man-made perturbations? How can one quantify the roller-coaster dynamics of stock markets and anticipate mega-crashes? Can we diagnose the health condition of patients from heartbeat time-series analysis which may even form the basis for infarct prevention? This book tackles these questions by applying advanced methods from statistical physics and related fields to all types of non-linear dynamics prone to disaster. The transdisciplinary analysis is organized in some dozen review articles written by world-class scientists
Der Klimawandel : Diagnose, Prognose, Therapie by Stefan Rahmstorf( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in German and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Klimawandel ist - nicht zuletzt nach der Katastrophe von New Orleans - in aller Munde. Angesichts seiner einschneidenden und globalen Bedeutung für Natur und Zivilisation ist das kein Wunder. Doch was ist eigentlich unter Klimawandel zu verstehen, und welche Faktoren sind für das Klima verantwortlich? Zwei renommierte Klimaforscher geben einen kompakten und verständlichen Überblick über den derzeitigen Stand unseres Wissens und zeigen Lösungswege auf
Earth system analysis : integrating science for sustainability : complemented results of a symposium organized by the Potsdam Institute (PIK) by Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber( Book )

16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As humanity approaches the third millennium, the substainability of our present way of life becomes more and more questionable. New paradigms for the long-term coevolution of nature and civilization are urgently needed in order to avoid intolerable and irreversible modifications of our planetary environment. "Earth systems analysis" is a new scientific enterprise that tries to perceive the earth as a whole, a unique system which is to be analyzed with methods ranging from nonlinear dynamics to macroeconomic modelling. This book, resulting from an international symposium organized by the Potsdam Institute, has two aims: first, to integrate contributions from leading researchers and scholars from around the world to provide a multifaceted perspective of what Earth System Analysis is all about, and second, to outline the scope of the scientific challenge and elaborate the general formalism for a well-defined transdisciplinary discourse on this most fascinating issue
Climate refugees : "the human face of climate change"( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[E]xplore[s] the global human impact of climate change and its serious destabilizing effect on international politics. The film turns the distant concept of global warming into a concrete human problem with enormous worldwide consequences ... features a variety of leading scientists, relief workers, security consultants, and major political figures, including John Kerry and Newt Gingrich. Whether human-caused or a product of nature, the changing climate is already creating humanitarian disasters and will inevitably lead to worldwide political instability."
World in transition by Wissenschaftlicher Beirat der Bundesregierung Globale Umweltveränderungen (Germany)( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume proposes an important and definitive model for structural reform in order to strengthen global environmental policy making
Klimaänderung und Küste : Einblick ins Treibhaus by Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in German and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klimawirkungsforschung untersucht die Auswirkungen von Klimaänderungen hinsichtlich ökologischer und zivilisatorischer Effekte auf den Menschen und seine Umwelt durch Erarbeitung von Handlungsstrategien. Dieser Statusbericht vermittelt einen Einblick ins Treibhaus aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln: auf den globalen und regionalen Wandel, als Blick zurück in das geologische Archiv sowie auf die Klimaauswirkungen, auf die Hydro-Morphodynamik und Küstensicherheit, auf die Flora und Fauna, auf Ökosysteme und Stoffkreisläufe sowie auf sozio-ökonomischer Ebene am Beispiel der südlichen Nord- und Ostsee. Küsteningenieure, Geographen und Raumplaner, Geologen, Biologen, Klima-, Sozial- und Wirtschaftsforscher sowie Verantwortliche in den Küstenverwaltungen erhalten einen bisher nicht verfügbaren Überblick über die Zusammenhänge des globalen Wandels an diesem konkreten Raumbeispiel
Selbstverbrennung die fatale Dreiecksbeziehung zwischen Klima, Mensch und Kohlenstoff by Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

»Um jedes Zehntelgrad zu kämpfen« lohne sich, davon ist Deutschlands wichtigster Klimaforscher mit internationaler Reputation überzeugt. Er streitet seit Jahrzehnten darum, dass Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft dem Klimawandel und seinen dramatischen Folgen endlich ins Auge sehen – und alles daran setzen, ihn aufzuhalten. In einem brisanten Thesenbuch spitzt er seine Kritik noch einmal zu: Nach derzeitigem Wissensstand bewegt sich unsere Zivilisation nicht auf die oft genannte Zwei-Grad-Grenze, sondern viel dramatischer auf eine Erwärmung von 3 bis 4 Grad Celsius bis Ende des Jahrhunderts zu. Die fortgesetzte Verbrennung fossiler Energieträger droht zum kollektiven Suizid zu führen. Hans Joachim Schellnhuber fasst das aktuelle Wissen in aller Schärfe zusammen, damit die Politiker auf der »Schicksalskonferenz« in Paris im Spätherbst 2015 die letzte Chance zum Umsteuern ergreifen. „Der Charme dieses vielhundertseitigen Werks liegt darin, dass Joachim Schellnhuber sich nicht hinter einer unzugänglichen Fassade von Wissenschaftlichkeit verbirgt, sondern seine persönliche Haltung einbringt – er ist empört, er ist nachhaltig angefressen. »Empört euch!«, 2010, wir erinnern uns, war ein viel beachteter Essay des seinerzeit dreiundneunzigjährigen ehemaligen französischen Widerstandskämpfers und UN-Diplomaten Jérome Hessel. Wind of change“ (titel-kulturmagazin.net)

11 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addresses a weakness of methodologies used in value assessment, that is the assumption of stationarity, which is not given in reality.
