Unstoppable Global Warming

Unstoppable Global Warming

Supported by in-depth scientific evidence, Singer and Avery present the compelling concept that global temperatures have been rising mostly or entirely because of a natural cycle. Unstoppable Global Warming explains why we're warming, why it's not very dangerous, and why we can't stop it anyway.

How much of global warming is due to human activities? How far will it be possible to adapt to changes of climate? Sir John Houghton's definitive, full colour guide to climate change answers these questions and more by providing the best and latest information available, including the latest IPCC findings. The simple, logical flow of ideas gives an invaluable grounding in the science, as well as the physical and human impacts of climate change for undergraduate students across a wide range of disciplines. Accessible to both scientists and non-scientists, the text avoids mathematical equations and includes more technical material in boxes, while simple figures help students to understand the conclusions the science leads to without being overwhelmed by vast amounts of data. Questions for students to consider and test their understanding are included in each chapter, along with carefully selected further reading to expand their knowledge.

Global warming has become such a hot topic these days because of its relevance to greenhouse gases that some scientists feel are the cause for warming and may cause the polar ice caps to melt and flood coastal cities. These would be so catastrophic as to cause great economic and social hardship that would be insurmountable. Of course it is related to the production of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the burning of fossil fuels in automobiles and other industrial equipment. With sufficient data, however, it can be concluded that although the earth's surface and atmosphere does indeed have effects on our weather patterns, there is nothing consistent that points to repetitions of global warming over millions of years since the earth has existed. But if you look at the extraterrestrial sources as the earth changes ecliptic and changes rotation around the sun, a pattern of repetition is clear. A recurrent cycle of change resulted when the 100 thousand year elliptical orbit was conflated with the 52 thousand year ecliptic cycle. A repetitive cycle of glaciation and global warming emerged that seemed to follow the past history of these events from known studies throughout the ages by scientists in the field of climatology.

Dialogue on global warming has progressed from the Kyoto Protocol to meetings in Copenhagen and Cancun and will soon resume in meetings in South Africa. Some observers consider the Copenhagen conference a failure. EU representatives, in contrast, present an optimistic evaluation of achieving a global temperature rise limit of not more than 2°C by 2100. Geoscience researchers and lead investigators of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have supported CO2 emission reduction pledges and contend that we can achieve the 2°C limit through international coordination. This position conflicts with evaluations of United States Congressional and Presidential advisors, who do not believe the Copenhagen CO2 reduction commitments can hold the global warming increase to below 2°C and who have not supported the agreement. Developing countries are alarmed, because climate change is expected to hit them hardest. The developed world will use energy to mitigate global warming effects, but developing countries are more exposed by geography and poverty to the most dangerous consequences of a global temperature rise. The Oxford Handbook of the Macroeconomics of Global Warming analyzes the macroeconomics of global warming, especially the economics of possible preventative measures, various policy changes, and potential effects of climate change on developing and developed nations.
