About this book

Although the title of this volume and its major focus will be on one major aspect of global sustainability - climate change - this volume continues with the overall framing of the series: global sustainability is a multi-faceted, global, multi-generational, economic, social, environmental, and cultural phenomenon and challenge to our species.
