9781440839986: Managing the Climate Crisis: Assessing Our Risks, Options, and Prospects

Using a risk management approach to tease apart the complex issue of climate change, this book assesses the key vulnerabilities and redirects the discussion to present a comprehensive plan to overhaul our response to climate change.


· Introduces a broader audience to climate change as a crisis already in motion that poses predictable risks and urgently requires public policy changes and the creation of a national climate policy

· Makes the "invisible crisis" of climate change visible and comprehensible by enabling readers to understand the problem in the context of hazard risk and risk management
