Roger A. Sedjo: I propose that we must implement Plan B: Adaptation as a backup, together with Plan A: Mitigation.
If there is one book to read about climate change and how to adapt to the changes it brings, this is the book: Surviving Global Warming: Why Eliminating Greenhouse Gases Isnt Enough (Prometheus Books; 2019) by Roger A. Sedjo .
Surviving Global Warming discusses global change and particularly global warming. It examines the several areas where environmental damage could be severe. It discusses the several approaches to reducing warming. Sedjo argues that simply reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs) may not be sufficient and considers geoengineering strategies that could mitigate the impact of the warming effects of gases.
The author said: After years of studying the evidence, I am convinced that the nations on this planet are taking the wrong approach with their almost exclusive focus on preventing GHGs to address climate change, it is now recognized that some warning has become inevitable, and despite the huge expenditure of resources on controlling fossil fuels and GHG emissions, any plausible amount of prevention will still be inadequate to reduce greenhouse gases enough to stabilize temperatures within the desired range.
In this book, I propose that we include adaptation (as a backup together with mitigation) as a practical addition to the current approach of mitigation. I will discuss major areas like the coastal zone, the agricultural sector, and ecological resources as likely to experience extreme damage. I will explore some of the approaches that can be used for adaptation and damage control management in each area.
