Publisher's Summary:
"The Encyclopedia of Global Warming and Climate Change" is a collection of approximately 750 articles in a three-volume set, presented in an A to Z alphabetical format, exploring major topics related to global warming and climate change - ranging geographically from the North Pole to the South Pole, and thematically from social effects to scientific causes. Its coverage includes the science and history of climate change, the polarizing controversies over climate-change theories, the role of societies, the industrial and economic factors, and the sociological aspects of climate change. The scope of the encyclopedia is focused on providing a primarily nonscientific resource to understanding the complexities of climate change for academic and public libraries, written by scholars and institutional experts in the geosciences.
