Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Hardcover

Description:

Hardcover. 332 pages. Dimensions: 9.8in. x 6.9in. x 0.9in.This book is the first to present a detailed and critical appraisal of the geo-scale engineering interventions that have been proposed as potential measures to counter the devastation of run-away global warming. Early chapters set the scene with a discussion of projections of future CO2 emissions and techniques for predicting climate tipping points. Subsequent chapters then review proposals to limit CO2 concentrations through improved energy technologies, removal of CO2 from the atmosphere, and stimulated uptake by the oceans. Schemes for solar radiation management involving the reflection of sunlight back into space and using artificially brightened clouds and stratospheric aerosols are also assessed. Pros and cons of the various schemes are thoroughly examined - throwing light on the passionate public debate about their safety. Written by a group of the worlds leading authorities on the subject, this comprehensive reference is essential reading for researchers and government policy makers at Copenhagen and beyond. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781107018761
