Series: Climate Change and its Causes, Effects and Prediction, Environmental Research Advances
BISAC: POL044000

In this book, the authors discuss new developments in global warming research. Topics discussed in this compilation include the impact of climate change on food security and health in Northern Cameroon; a reversal of global warming using a $3 trillion market force of chemicals and fuels produced directly and selectively in continuous fermentations of gas blends comprising CO and CO2; global warmings’ effects on mesospheric airglow in the Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere (MLT) region; the implication of regionalism, bilateralism or fragmentation on the universal climate change treaty for Asia; bud dormancy in woody fruit species; evidence of climate change from an urban environment comprising long-term climatic records; changes in temperature in 46 capital cities of Asia from 1901 to 1998; and an investigation of how to explore different levels of parallelism in climatological models using mixed interfaces of parallel programming and how these models can provide mesh refinement at execution time.
