Thinking about Global Climate Change

  • Milton Russell
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 45)


Climate change is a world-class problem in both meanings of that term. The “Global Climate Change: Linking Energy, Environment, Economy and Equity” linkages that are the subject of this book demonstrate the global reach of the effects, and their complexity challenges the most nimble of minds and the deepest of intellects. No short chapter could summarize these linkages, even if they were all clear. And no chapter of any length could interpret and define these linkages because so far they defy clear articulation.
