Abstract

THESE days debate over climate change (aka global warming) pervades every facet of our lives from politics to conservation, from small talk to international conferences. Managing Climate Change presents the papers from one of those conferences, Greenhouse 2009. Remarkably, Greenhouse 2009 was the fifth in the Greenhouse series, occupied four days, was attended by more than 500 delegates, and comprised more than 150 presentations and I had never heard of it. Admittedly I’ve turned off a bit on climate change viewing it all as “too little, too late” and at my age no longer my problem. Still, given my efforts in the 1980s to alert people to the challenges of climate change2, I could not understand how I missed all this so turned to the internet for details.
