SUMMER READING—AN EXCELLENT GUIDE TO THE DEBATE

May 8th, 2007 <-- by Paul Higgins -->

Summer reading opportunities abound for anyone interested climate change. The IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report includes recently released contributions from Working Group I on the science of climate change (with a Summary for Policy Makers, Technical Summary, and individual chapters now available), from Working Group II on impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability (WG-II SPM), and from Working Group III on climate change mitigation (WG-III SPM).

For anyone looking for an engaging overview of climate change, I’d strongly recommend The Science and Politics of Global Climate Change: A Guide to the Debate (Cambridge University Press, 2006) by Andrew Dessler and Edward Parson. I recently reviewed the book for BAMS (you can download my review here) and found it to be one of the most readable overviews that I’ve seen.

    Dear Researchers,

    My remark is, the future math of UN FCCC Kyoto Potocol shell be JI + CDM = AIJ

    Note:
    UN FCCC, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
    JI, Joint Implementation
    CDM, Clean Development Mechanism
    AIJ, Activities Implemented Jointly

    Therefore, intellectual proerty development worldwide should be categorized for future strategic and policy issues.
