About The Book

The impact of climate change on various environmental components and their interaction has become an emerging global environmental issue for the last few decades. Climate change due to emission of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide leading to rise in temperature and change in rainfall patterns is going to put adverse effects on human life. It has been assessed that climate will show changing trends on account of a variety of mechanisms and are predicted at an unprecedented rate in decades to come. The greatest task for humankind during this century will be to reconcile the need of growing population which will exert enormous pressure on natural resources. With this demand, it is great challenge before all concern to keep environment clean and sustainable. The impact of climate change on human life will be more severe in decades to come. Under this threat, to keep the environment sustainable we have to chalk out a strategy for adaptation and mitigation of climate change. The scientists in the concerned field have given more attention to evaluate the present state of climate and changes recorded as compare to the past. The climate change models suggested so far project various predictions for the state of water resources, biodiversity, agriculture etc, and for impact on human life.
