Item description for The Edge Futures (Edge Futures Ser.) by Duncan McCorquodale...
Edge Futures are a series of six books that explore the impact that climate change will have on different aspects of our lives in the future. They are available to order as individual titles or as a complete set.
By the year 2025, the climate will have changed irrevocably, mainly as a result of greenhouse gas emissions. The temperature is predicted to be, on average, half a degree warmer and will fluctuate to a greater extent. Rainfall will have reduced but will also become more extreme. Resources such as energy, water and food imports will be in shorter supply and transport will be constrained; partly as a result of climate change but also due to regulations aimed at preventing global warming. In a series of important and timely books, The Edge Group explore the impact these changes will have on our lives in the future.
Education and Creativity studies the future of the knowledge and creative economies in our changing world. Transports and Networks is a thorough examination of the future of travel, both in terms of personal mobility and commerce. Working explores how climate change will affect the way we work and live. Living and Community investigates shifts in the social fabric of our communities that will be necessitated by environmental change. Globalism and Regionalism considers the impact that dwindling resources and restricted travel will have on global competitiveness and regional identity. Health and Leisure contemplates the influence that our current lifestyle choices will have on our future health and wellbeing.
