Now as we stand at the crossroads, the steps taken by national governments, business communities and others involved in the negotiations will determine which path we will take as a world community, to mitigate and to adapt to climate change. As discussed in the book, in the coming years it is more politics than policies that will determine the way forward to climate change negotiations, Kyoto protocol and beyond regime. This book combines philosophical approach to climate change (including a development debate and a discussion on need for equitable approach to climate change negotiations), with scientific facts and its impact on human health. Adaptation is one of the important issues in the book.
