Climate Change: Science and Solutions for Australia
By Bruce Mapstone
Climate change is one of the greatest ecological, economic, and social challenges facing us today.
The scientific evidence that human activities are contributing to climate change is compelling, but society is increasingly seeking information about the nature of the evidence and what can be done in response to a changing climate.
This book provides some of that much-needed information from some of Australia’s leading climate scientists.
This book is based on rigorous peer-reviewed scientific literature to articulate how human activities affect our climate, what changes we have seen already, what further changes we can expect, and what we might do to reduce future changes and live with those that are now inevitable.
The wealth of science behind this book reflects decades of research by researchers in Australia and internationally, including many from CSIRO.
