Derived from an undergraduate course taught by the author, this accessible book seeks to challenge and provoke readers by posing a series of topical questions concerning climate change and society.
Topic summaries provide answers to technical, socio-economic and moral questions surrounding the deployment of climate science.
These include how to build and test a climate model, whom and what is most at risk from climate change, and whether we should geoengineer the climate.
Practical exercises and case studies provide deeper insights by taking readers through role-play activities and authentic climate change projects.
Supporting materials, including notes for instructors and students, graphics, video-clips, games, and online resources, offer scope for further private study and group work.
With a focus on applying climate science in practice, this book is ideal for students of geography, natural science, engineering and economics, as well as practitioners involved in the climate service industry.
