Slowing global warming is among the most complex economic, political and diplomatic challenges of our time. Cutting greenhouse gas emissions from burning coal, petroleum, and other fossil fuels will require innovation and hard work by governments, businesses and consumers alike. While there are great challenges, there are also promising opportunities in addressing the problem, not only in industrialized nations, but also in rapidly developing countries like India and China.

Elizabeth Ferris says their careful analysis of regional and global trends is an important step forward in our understanding of how people’s lives are uprooted by disasters stemming from the effects of climate change.
