Indeed, for most, environmental degradation and global warming -which are both an outcome and a reminder of humanity's inability to curb pollution and reduce its carbon emissions -foreshadow an.

Global environmental change is a pressing issue as evidenced by the rise of extreme weather conditions in many parts of the world, threatening the survival of vulnerable species and habitats.

Much is at stakeFile Size: 1MB. Thus, this book, presenting an up-to-date view of geological history, the ice ages, the global carbon cycle, the cycles of nitrogen and phosphorus, the fate of ozone and pesticides, human energy use, desertification, forest clearance and biological diversity, is both a splendid introduction to environmental science and a tribute to scientific 5/5(1).

Basics of Environmental Science Basics of Environmental Science is an engaging introduction to environmental study. The book offers everyone studying and interested in the environment, an essential understanding of natural environments and the way they function.

Relevant Perspectives in Global Environmental Change 4 change, which will greatly, and in some case irreversibly, affect not just people, but also species and ecosystems. The schematic framework on the current state of GEC, representing anthropogenic drivers, impacts of and responses to climate change, and their linkages is presented in Figure 1.Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years.

It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events).Human health is vulnerable to climate change.

The changing environment is expected to cause more heat stress, an increase in waterborne diseases, poor air quality, and diseases transmitted by insects and rodents. Extreme weather events can compound many of these health threats.
