Feeling the Heat: Dispatches from the Frontlines of Climate Change. Edited by Jim Motavalli. From the thawing Arctic to the rising shoreline of Manhattan, people are feeling the effects of global warming in ways hardly imagined a few years ago. For an increasing number, global warming is not a scientific debate but a matter of survival. As the planet warms, violent storms are increasing, icebergs are melting, sea level is rising, species are losing their habitats, and temperature records are being broken. Feeling the Heat reports on visits to "hot" spots where people are coping with climactic disruption. As Kindle | More... | Jim Motavalli EcoSpeakers Info >>

Fighting for Love in the Century of Extinction: How Passion and Politics Can Stop Global Warming. By Eban Goodstein. Focuses on our connections with all forms of life. Provides an overview of the current global warming crisis, and explores the question of whether the scale of mass extinction we are beginning to witness in the 21st century has more ominous implications for human welfare than it did in the 20th century. Argues that if we are to hold global heating to a manageable level, we must stabilize emissions of global warming pollutants and invest tens of billions of dollars every year in clean-energy technology. More... | Eban Goodstein EcoSpeakers Info >>

Full Planet, Empty Plates: The New Geopolitics of Food Scarcity. By Lester Brown. With food scarcity driven by falling water tables, eroding soils, and rising temperatures, control of land and water is moving to center stage in the struggle for food security. The ability to grow food is a new form of geopolitical leverage – food is the new oil. What will the geopolitics of food look like in an era of scarcity and food nationalism? Brown outlines the political implications of land acquisitions in Africa and elsewhere by grain-importing countries as well as of our shrinking buffers against poor harvests. As Kindle | More…

Global Warming: The Complete Briefing. By John Houghton. What is the evidence for climate changing due to human activities? Written for students across a wide range of disciplines, this full color undergraduate textbook comprehensively explores these and other issues allowing students to think through the problem, assess the data and draw conclusions on the action that should be taken. As Kindle | More...

The Greenhouse Trap: What We're Doing to the Atmosphere and How We Can Slow Global Warming. By Francesca Lyman. The Greenhouse Trap traces the history of the greenhouse effect and shows how the current crisis has come about. Earth’s surface temperatures could rise anywhere from 3 to 9 degrees Fahrenheit. Possible future consequences for agriculture, human health, natural ecosystems, and the quality of life on Earth are vividly described and objectively assessed. Government policies for slowing global warming are outlined along with suggestions for individuals to follow in their homes and communities. More... | Francesca Lyman EcoSpeakers Info >>

The Hadley Circulation: Present, Past and Future. By Raymond Bradley. The Hadley and Walker Circulations are regulators of the Earth's energy budget. This book reviews knowledge of their circulation dynamics and of their interactions with the major global monsoon systems. It also evaluates paleoclimatic records to shed light on variability of climate over the last 1000 years, the Holocene (the last 11,500 years), and other past glacial and warm periods. It serves as a fundamental reference work for researchers, students in the atmospheric sciences and geosciences, and specialists in interdisciplinary research. As Kindle | More… | Raymond Bradley EcoSpeakers Info >>

The Heat Is On. By Ross Gelbspan. The Heat Is On exposes the deliberate campaign by oil and coal interests, teamed with conservative politicians, to confuse the public about global warming. More...

Outgrowing The Earth. By Lester Brown. Falling water tables in countries that contain more than half the world's people and rising temperatures worldwide are the leading threats to global security. Water shortages and crop-withering heat waves are shrinking grain harvests, making it difficult for the world's farmers to feed 70 million more people each year. Tightening food supplies could drive up food prices, destabilizing governments in low-income grain-importing countries and disrupting global economic progress. Future security depends on raising water productivity and stabilizing climate and population. More…

Paleoclimatology: Reconstructing Climates of the Quaternary. By Raymond Bradley. A comprehensive up-to-date review of the methods used in paleoclimatic reconstruction, dating and paleoclimate modeling. Two chapters on dating methods provide the foundation for all paleoclimatic studies and are followed by coverage of ice core research, continental geological and biological records, pollen analysis, radiocarbon dating, tree rings and historical records. New methods using alkenones in marine sediments and coral studies are described. Essential for students of climatology, paleoclimatology and paleooceanography.

Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization. By Lester Brown. As fossil fuel prices rise, oil insecurity deepens, and concerns about climate change cast a shadow over the future of coal, a new energy economy is emerging. Wind, solar, and geothermal energy are replacing oil, coal, and natural gas, at a pace and on a scale we could not have imagined even a year ago. For the first time since the Industrial Revolution, we have begun investing in energy sources that can last. Plan B 4.0 explores both the nature of this transition and how it will affect our daily lives. As Kindle | More...

Safe Trip to Eden: Ten Steps to Save Planet Earth from the Global Warming Meltdown. By David Steinman. Safe Trip to Eden draws the connection between personal health and a healthy environment and argues both that global warming is a greater threat to national security than terrorism and that a "sound environmental policy" will enhance our standing in the world and strengthen our economy. It explains how reliance on petroleum-based products and chemical pesticides impacts health, national security and the planet, and it provides clear, simple steps we can take to make responsible environmental choices. As Kindle | More… | David Steinman EcoSpeakers Info >>
