"Climate change is not just a science problem - it's a social one - Climate Change in the 21st Century provides a fresh perspective because it primarily focuses on specific examples of societal implications and responses to climate change" Jacqueline J. Shinker, University of Wyoming "The authors bring together various kinds of science-oriented material around a complex topic that is usually addressed from only one perspective, highlighting issues and methods that are at the cutting edge of research about climate change" Elizabeth Malone, Joint Global Change Research Institute, College Park, Maryland "For students, major decision-makers, or concerned, college-educated voters, Climate Change in the 21st Century is a valuable guide to a global reality that is abstraction no more." Montreal Review of Books "Recently, "ecophobia" has arisen as a debilitating problematic for ecocriticism. The fear is over performative incapacity. A major aspect of that fear is the sketchy scientific understanding among some ecocritics. Stewart Cohen's Climate Change in the 21st Century can help remedy that. (...) Ecocritics will especially appreciate [Cohen's] discussion of the fraught notion of sustainability that closes the book." David Heinimann, The Goose: Literature, Arts, Environment & Culture in Canada "This book merits a place in every type of library and will be a useful resource for readers from diverse backgrounds."
