Questions: • How do greenhouse gases regulate the Earth’s temperature? • How hot will it get? • Will South Africa run out of water? • Do cow-farts really cause global warming? • Isn’t climate change just part of a long-term natural cycle? • Can solar and wind power meet our energy needs? • How can I reduce my carbon footprint? • Is there any chance of runaway global warming? These and many other questions are answered in this full-colour illustrated book. Climate change affects us all, but it can be a confusing business. Three leading South African scientists who have worked on the issue for over two decades help you to make sense of this topic. Climate Change: Briefings from Southern Africa takes the form of 55 ‘frequently asked questions’, each with a brief, clear scientifically up-to-date reply. The authors’ introduction provides an overview of current national and international policies aimed at regulating climate change.
