From the Publisher
"Overall, the cases are valuable focused studies in each of their particular domains....the volume will be of use to sectoral/area experts in the climate impacts community and can also serve as an introduction to a number of aspects of climate impacts." Roger A. Pielke Jr., Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

"In a realm of research that has seen too many superficial analyses and resulting claims, the rigorous approach of this treatise is refreshing. It does nothing to lessen the uncertainty of impacts from climate warming, but the integrated, numerical approach of the final chapter develops a promising analytical methodology to employ in future integrated-assessment efforts." Wayne R. Rouse, American Scientist
