Summary Inspired by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Second Assessment Report, Jepma and Munasinghe set out to create a concise, practical, and compelling approach to climate change issues. In Climate Change Policy: Facts, Issues, and Analyses, they deftly explain the implications of global warming and the risks involved in attempting to mitigate climate change. They look at how and where to initiate action, and what sort of organization is needed to implement the changes. This book represents a much-needed synopsis of climate change and its real impact on society. It will be an essential text for climate change researchers, policy analysis, university students studying the environment, and anyone else with an interest in climate change issues
