David Wallace-Wells' The Uninhabitable Earth and Nathaniel Rich's Losing Earth offer valuable perspectives on climate change — if we're committed to being adult enough to face the future. One of archaeology's strengths is its ability to look at long-term processes, including long-term climate change. This is precisely the sort of process that eludes modern climate data, which at best go back only a few hundred years. As a result, long-term climate change, and its effect on human society, also eludes modern politicians and planners.
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 this Book. In the context of current debates about global warming, archaeology contributes important insights for understanding environmental changes in prehistory, and the consequences and responses of past populations to them.
In Indian archaeology, climate change and monsoon variability are often invoked to explain major demographic transitions, cultural changes, and migrations of prehistoric Cited by: Bioarchaeology is the integration of human skeletal remains from ancient societies with the cultural and environmental context.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariat has produced this book to highlight the concerns and needs of developing countries 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.
The carbon dioxide factor There are concerns that the Amazon region could become a net source rather than a sink (storage) of carbon dioxide (CO 2), a gas emitted mainly from burning fossil fuels, coal, oil and natural gas - and the major driver for global climate change.
Currently, the Amazon rainforests are still a sink for CO 2, despite some 20% of CO 2 emissions globally arising from. Published inand now featuring a recently updated afterward, journalist Elizabeth Kolbert's book, Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change, examines the.

Yet, around B.C., the majority of these settlements were deserted. This book uses evidence from paleoclimate research, archaeology, and human skeletal material to examine life and death at three villages occupied during this.

Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events).

Please try again later.Bioarchaeology and Social Theory aims to publish research grounded in empirical and scientific analysis of human skeletonized remains (referred to as bioarchaeology) from a wide variety of ancient, historic and contemporary contexts.
The interpretations utilize social theory to frame the questions that blend cultural, environmental and social domains so that an integrated picture emerges.It is widely accepted in the scientific community that climate change is a reality, and that changes are happening with increasing rapidity.
In this second edition, leading climate researcher Barrie Pittock revisits the effects that global warming is having on our planet, in light of ever-evolving scientific research.
