Summary
  • Drawn from issues discussed at the 1992 Earth Summit, this volume of essays addresses the most strategic questions and challenges to scientists and policymakers on the important subject of climate change. The book features an international cast of environmental, science, and policy experts who assess the implications, strengths and limitations of the Rio Convention while considering how best to meet the challenge that atmospheric pollution poses worldwide
  • Issues covered include: the spread of beneficial technology and the competence required in developing countries; improving inventories of greenhouse gases; calculating the most effective mix of measures, nationally and regionally; meeting future energy needs for countries with different economic structures while limiting emissions of greenhouse gases
