9780253006820: Climate Change in the Midwest: Impacts, Risks, Vulnerability, and Adaptation

The research presented in this volume focuses on identifying and quantifying the major vulnerabilities to climate change in the Midwestern United States. By providing state-of-the-art spatially disaggregated information regarding the historical, current, and possible future climate within the region, the contributors assess the risks and susceptibility of the critical socio-economic and environmental systems. Key sectors discussed are agriculture, human health, water, energy and infrastructure, and the vulnerabilities that may be amplified under current climate trajectories. The book also considers the challenges and opportunities to develop local and regional strategies for addressing the risks posed by climate change in the context of developing an integrative policy for the region.

Review:

This volume is well organized, written, and edited . . . Recommended. (Choice)

When writing about climate change, scientists are often challenged with focusing on either specific academic audiences or more general readers. In rare instances, authors and editors can meet the needs of both groups. It is such a case with Climate Change in the Midwest. . .
The contributors are among the best in their field. . . . The lessons here will separate the winners and losers of the future. It is my hope that enough people read this book so that a positive impact is realized.June 2014 (Quarterly Review of Biology)
