A World Without Ice by Henry Pollack

By Henry Pollack

A cowinner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize deals a clear-eyed clarification of the planet's imperiled ice.

a lot has been written approximately international warming, however the an important dating among humans and ice has bought little focus-until now. As one of many world's top specialists on weather switch, Henry Pollack presents an available, accomplished survey of ice as a strength of nature and the aptitude results as we are facing the potential for an international with no ice.

A global with out Ice lines the influence of mountain glaciers on offers of consuming water and agricultural irrigation, in addition to the present result of melting permafrost and shrinking Arctic sea ice-a scenario that has degraded the habitat of diverse animals and sparked a global race for seabed oil and minerals. Catastrophic probabilities loom, together with emerging sea degrees and next flooding of low-lying areas all over the world. A international with no Ice solutions our so much pressing questions about this pending concern, laying out the required steps for dealing with the unavoidable and warding off the unmanageable.
