'This book makes it clear to all of us that, while risks of abrupt climate change are increasing, opportunities to solve the climate crisis are abundant. It's an impressive accomplishment.'
Former Vice President of the United States
Co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Prize
'The multiple lines of evidence from leading researchers collected in this book show that climate change will have more serious effects than imagined even a couple years ago. Fortunately, it also points the way to accelerating our response to the growing threat posed by climate change.'
Lester R. Brown
President of Earth Policy Institute
The Climate Institute's new book Sudden and Disruptive Climate Change: Exploring the Real Risks and How We Can Avoid Them (Earthscan 2007) promises to be a leading reference work for those seriously interested in risks of global warming and practical measures that can be taken both to adapt to and slow the apparent acceleration in the pace of climate change.
Written by a transdisciplinary group of internationally respected researchers at the Washington Summit on Climate Stabilization held September 18 - 21, 2006, Sudden and Disruptive Climate Change explores the significance for society of such changes and efforts already undertaken by a wide range of individuals and groups.
