Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Subsidence: Causes, Consequences, and Strategies

by Springer

Greenhouse-induced climate warming increasingly appears to be a reality, and the warming climate will be accompanied by an accelerated sea level rise - as much as 60-100 cm over the next century. What is commonly absent in the discussion of rising sea level, however, is the role played by the subsidence of low-lying coastal areas, which can ...;

Global Warming

by Eurospan Ltd

For the foreseeable future, the international climate regime will include some countries that execute emissions commitments on an economy-wide basis and others that take more limited action. This distinction is already raising some tricky political concerns, particularly the fear that the resulting costs will cause the off-shoring of industrial ...;

A Sectoral Approach: Greenhouse Gas Mitigation in the Cement Industry

by Earthprint Ltd

This economic and policy modeling project is designed to improve understanding of the impacts of different carbon policies on emissions reductions, global trade and regional market shares in the cement sector. The results of the study show that cement production is likely to more than double by 2030, based on current demand forecasts.;

The Kyoto Protocol

by Springer

The adoption of the Kyoto Protocol in December 1997 was a major achievement in the endeavour to tackle the problem of global climate change at the dawn of the 21st century. After many years of involvement in the negotiation process, the book's two internationally recognised authors now offer the international community a first hand and inside ...;

Global Warming
