Issues in Canada Series
Written by Rodney White.
Published by Oxford University Press, 2010.
|A significant number of
Canadians believe that climate change is the biggest threat facing the world
today. Climate change is now more than a scientific debate; it is a matter
urgently discussed in the realms of politics, geography, and economics.
In this concise, accessible introduction, Climate Change in Canada evaluates the visible effects of climate change and looks ahead to future outcomes, reminding us of the price of inaction. Author Rodney White also explores potential solutions to this complex, international, multifaceted problem.
What is most likely to happen in Canada? From melting permafrost and falling water levels in the Great Lakes to extreme weather events, White guides us through the latest science and expert predictions. He also explores the politics involved, from the Kyoto process to the approach taken in the United States by the Obama administration. He evaluates the probable future of business and economics: clean technology, carbon markets, and "weather" markets. What has been Canada's response to the challenges and the opportunities?
