Review "A significant number of Canadians believe that climate change is the biggest threat facing the world today. Climate change is now more than a scientific debate; it is a matter urgently discussed in the realms of politics, geography, and economics." "In this short, accessible Introduction, Rodney White evaluates the visible effects of climate change and looks ahead to future outcomes, reminding us of the price of inaction. White also explores potential solutions to this complex, international, multifaceted problem."--BOOK JACKET
