Write about the Book Review for Atlas of Climate Change.
Kirstin Dow and Thomas E. Downing wrote the book ‘The Atlas of Climate Change’ (Ferrara, 2015). The book is about the climate change factor. This book has seven systemic chapters that covers glacial draw back and polar conversions to other known consequences of nature. Each of the chapters denotes the images and illustrations of maps and graphics demonstrating the related climate changes topic (Kohler, 2015).
For defining the concept of cultural loss, a wide variety of interesting selection is made that does not have any exhaustive factor (Ferrara, 2015). Throughout the book, the author sticks to the facts of climate change rather than relying on the parties. When the author says that many countries have acknowledged the climate change factor, there is no mention of any hint, about the countries that has not acknowledged the factor. This book clearly provides in a descriptive way the impacts of the climate change, the mitigations of the climate change (Ferrara, 2015). The both author clearly describes the effect of climate change on the lives of the people in the world. the authors in the book specifies the factors responsible for the climate change, the factors determining the consequences of the climate change and the data of the occurred climate change in many places. This book provides in a concise manner the information related to climate change and makes it a very common used tool by the classroom, professionals and others (Ferrara, 2015). The sections of the agriculture traditions are found to be instructively discussed as the illustrations used clearly details the climate change factor along with stating its impact on the nutrition of the people. The data presented in the book encourages the discussions of the mitigations of climate change. Many countries are seen to mitigate the climate change concept but this book makes the people realize the unique nature of the Earth and describes how through negative activities the people are harming the nature resulting to the climate change. People of the earth are well aware of the fact that climate change does occur due to the growth of industries and through many nature-unfriendly factors hence this book describes that unless the people are having the culpability they will not be able to stop the climate change (Black, 2016). This book highlights that everyone is aware of the climate change factor but few people want to discuss what impact it has on disturbing the cultural heritage factor. This book states that it is very important to understand the role of climate change in the cultural heritage. The book highlights the need of transformation of the cultural heritage by building artifacts and few other measures. This book reveals the climate change situation of the world and its effect on the cultural heritage. This book consists of maps of world, climate change maps, heritage maps, the damaged maps, the risk maps. This book also contains the guidelines to lessen the climate change, relation between the climate change and cultural heritage, infrastructure of the cultural heritage, importance of the mitigations and the recommendations to stop the changes of the climate. This book has the key subject of climate change and is based on the framework of the European commission (Stocker, 2014). This book discusses climate change and largely the relation of climate change with the cultural heritage and states how climate change influences the process of maintaining the cultural heritage. This book specifies many indications and recommendations that the humans can apply to reduce the climate change problem, demonstrates, and discusses the role of the humans in maintaining the cultural heritage of the countries (Stocker, 2014).
