Über dieses Buch

Responding to a need for a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the consequences of climate change, this book brings experts in climate science, engineering, urban planning, and conservation biology into conversation with scholars in law, geography, anthropology and ethics. It provides insights into how climate change is conceptualized in different fields. The book also aims to contribute to developing successful and multifaceted strategies that promote global, intergenerational and environmental justice. Among the topics addressed are the effects of climate change on the likelihood and magnitude of natural hazards, an assessment of civil infrastructure vulnerabilities, resilience assessment for coastal communities, an ethical framework to evaluate behavior that contributes to climate change, as well as policies and cultural shifts that might help humanity to respond adequately to climate change.

Stimmen zum Buch

“The book starts from the idea that, in order to obtain a clear vision and to present documented, relevant, sustainable and accurate responses to climate change, it will be necessary to take a cultural perspective and re-evaluate humanity’s priorities by means of a circular approach, with a clear direction of action at individual, sectorial, national and global levels. … The book persuasively demonstrates that it is essential for our future to experiment with social and economic restructuring, to better combat global warming.” (Ionica Oncioiu, Agriculture and Human Values, Vol. 36, 2019)
