Now more than ever, it is important for our society to understand that global warming is a reality. There are so many things that we have done, under the guise of industrialization and bettering our economy, that have had, and still have, ramifications on our immediate environment. Charts, graphs, maps, and sidebars of key figures and events distill important, proven information regarding global warming, so that readers can easily refer to them for report-writing or while building their own well-informed opinion. Readers will learn about the current and impending challenges facing the planet and how it affects human health. Further exploration in this volume covers the impacts of extreme cold snaps; issues arising from aridity; diminished air capacity from smog, pollution, the ozone, and aero-allergens; and food security and food safety.
