Case studies on Climate Change and World Heritage

Originally published in 2007 in English, this publication has now been reprinted for the third time in English and translated into French and Spanish. It presents twenty-six case studies from selected natural and cultural World Heritage sites in order to illustrate the impacts of climate change that have already been observed, and those that can be expected in the future. This is a foundation publication for the study of the effects of climate change that can be useful to experts as well as the general public. The original publication was funded by the United Nations Foundation and the UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport, while the third English edition and the translation and printing of the French and Spanish versions were made possible by a financial contribution from the Flemish and Spanish Funds-in-Trust.

Special K a dit…

For perspective, read the linked item.

Until reading the link you may not have known
But Now You Know
"For at least 114 years, climate “scientists” have been claiming that the climate was going to kill us…but they have kept switching whether it was a coming ice age, or global warming."

So, to believe today's climate change "predictions"
We (all of us) should be very slow.

The entries appear to represent an authentic account
Of reports in national(U.S.) media over the past 114 years
Suggesting that folks "in the know" have run first hot and then cold
As to whether we'll need more A/C or warmer muffs for our ears.
