  • Mathematics and Climate
    Award-winning textbook by Hans Kaper and Hans Engler, "aimed at students and researchers in mathematics and statistics who are interested in current issues of limate science, as well as at climate scientists who wish to become familiar with qualitative and quantitative methods of mathematics and statistics."

    See the American Mathematical Monthly review of the book here .

  • No Immediate Danger
    Book on Climate Change written by National Book Award winner William T. Vollman. From the Washington Post book review : "William T. Vollmann's new book, 'No Immediate Danger,' tussles with the comprehension-defying nature of climate change. It is a 600-page amalgam of scientific history, cultural criticism, mathematical experiments, risk-benefit analyses of energy production and consumption, and diaristic meanderings through radiation-festooned landscapes after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011. The effect is bewildering.

  • 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change(COP24)
    "The UNFCCC is a 'Rio Convention', one of three adopted at the 'Rio Earth Summit' in 1992. The UNFCCC entered into force on 21 March 1994. Today, it has near-universal membership. The countries that have ratified the Convention are called Parties to the Convention. Preventing 'dangerous' human interference with the climate system is the ultimate aim of the UNFCCC. "
