The Oceans and Climate by Grant R. Bigg, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.4/5(2). Impacts from climate change are happening now. These impacts extend well beyond an increase in temperature, affecting ecosystems and communities in the United States and around the world. Things that we depend upon and value — water, energy, transportation, wildlife, agriculture, ecosystems, and human health — are experiencing the effects.
"In the eight detailed, immensely readable essays of Waters of the World, Dry shows how over the past years scientists have slowly come to see climate as a global system, and to recognize how human activity contributes to changes in the complex interactions of ice, oceans, and the atmosphereDry looks beneath her subjects’ masks with sympathy and curiosity.
