For an increasing number of people, global warming is not an academic and scientific debate, but a matter of survival. As the planet warms at a rate of four degrees Fahrenheit per century, violent storms are increasing in frequency, icebergs are melting, sea level is rising, species are losing their habitats, and temperature records are being broken. Feeling the Heat consists of chapter-length visits by well-known authors to actual world "hot" spots, where people are already coping day-to-day with the consequences of climactic disruption. The locations for the book were strategically chosen because each represents a separate and important global warming impact, such as rising tides, melting glaciers, evolving ecosystems and air pollution. Feeling the Heat takes global warming out of the realm of armchair speculation and arcane scientific debate, revealing the process of climate change to be ongoing, serious and immediate.

Growing populations, increasing industrial use and heavy agricultural demand are beginning to tax water supplies in many regions of Canada's west. Future economic and social development will depend upon how much we know about our surface and ground water resources, and how effectively we manage them-especially in the face of climate change. The message to take home from this eloquent book is that it is time to dispel the myth of limitless abundance of water in Canada and throughout North America, that although our technologically sophisticated society is fuelled and lubricated largely by petroleum, it ultimately runs on plain water. In his conclusion to this authoritative book, Robert Sandford, chair of the United Nations water initiative in Canada, offers a realistic picture of the various issues and threats related to the availability and quality of fresh water that Canada will face in the future, and how we can effectively address them.

In this volume, the author chronicles America's maritime history and the challenges that American coastal and marine environments face today. He dives deep into the cultures of those who know the sea in myriad ways--fisherfolk, oil-rig roughnecks, hurricane forecasters, coastal developers, navy personnel, scientists, and surfers--and profiles the growing efforts by coastal citizens and local governments to restore and protect the health of our oceans in the face of wide-open development along our coasts and offshore. Demonstrating how national policymaking on the oceans is enmeshed in a welter of competing jurisdictions, he argues for strong omnibus legislation and the creation of truly protected marine wilderness reserves.
