    “Climate scientists often speak about the impacts of climate change in reference to aspects of our ecosystem, such as rising temperatures, rising seas, and more frequent extreme weather events. In Enviromedics, Doctors Lemery and Auerbach successfully identify the ominous links between climate change and human health, including mental health.   • Climate change (drought in particular) has been at least partly responsible for the rise and fall of many ancient civilizations. • Our way of life depends on a stable climate. Faced with a changing climate, we must learn the lessons of past collapsed civilizations and adapt.

      10) (mis)used the topic of climate change and migration to give a “human face to climate change” (Gemenne, , p. ). Until today, an enormous body of “grey” literature has been published on the climate-change migration nexus, which is more or less directly linked to the political agendas of the organizations financing these studies. Climate change is affecting the American people in far-reaching ways. Impacts related to climate change are evident across regions and in many sectors important to society—such as human health, agriculture and food security, water supply, transportation, energy, ecosystems, and others—and are expected to become increasingly disruptive throughout this century and beyond.

      We live in an age characterized by increasing environmental, social, economic, and political uncertainty. Human societies face significant challenges, ranging from climate change to food security, biodiversity declines and extinction, and political instability. In response, scientists, policy makers, and the general public are seeking new interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary approaches to.   Bill McKibben, who first warned of climate change 30 years ago, says its effects are now upon us: "The idea that anybody's going to be immune from this anywhere is untrue."

This book contributes to the current discussion on climate change by presenting selected studies on the ways in which past human groups responded to climatic and environmental change.

In particular, the chapters show how these responses are seen in the animal remains that people left behind in their occupation sites. The main part of the book comprises 11 chapters outlining the impacts of climate change, focusing on topics such as food and farming, water, health, the natural environment, migration and conflict.

Each chapter describes how global warming is already affecting rural and urban communities, as well as likely future impacts.

Causes of Climate Change. Climate change is a term that refers to major changes in temperature, rainfall, snow, or wind patterns lasting for decades or longer.

Both human-made and natural factors contribute to climate change: • Human causes. include burning fossil fuels, cutting down forests, and developing land for farms, cities, and roads. in adapting to the effects of climate change.

This book outlines the impact of climate change in four developing country regions: Africa, Asia, Latin America and small island developing States; the vulnerability of these regions to future climate change; current adaptation plans, strategies and actions; and future adaptation options and needs.

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.
