Whether people argue that global warming is caused by natural phenomenon or that it is caused by humans—or both—it is one of the most controversial topics in the scientific world today. There are varying opinions between scientists about the effects of global warming because so many interrelated factors are involved, making it difficult to pinpoint specific impacts and make changes accordingly. The Earth's climate is an extremely complicated system, and climatologists must conduct research daily in order to improve their understanding of all the interrelated components.

Climate Management focuses on changing human behavior as the first step toward a positive management system that will benefit current society and those to come. This new full-color resource explores human psychology and how cultural value systems, politics, and news dissemination affect people's opinions, thereby driving public response. Informing readers on how global warming affects national security and terrorism and why its progression is a very real threat to everyone's future, this accessible resource presents various conservation programs that have been developed and looks at what is and isn't working. Climate Management also outlines the importance of public education and the role it plays in the future.

Chapters include:

  • The Beginning: the UNFCCC, Kyoto Protocol, and IPCC
  • The U.S. Political Arena
  • Cap-and-Trade Programs and Other Mitigation Strategies
  • The International Political Arena
  • Global Warming, Human Psychology, and the Media
  • The Stand on the Debate
  • Green Energy and Global Warming Research
  • Climate Modeling
  • Practical Solutions that Work: Getting Everyone Involved
  • The Future: What Lies Ahead.
