We highly recommend reading of the latest publication of the University of Warsaw Publishing House, entitled "Climate ABC. The interdisciplinary current scientific knowledge base of climate change", edited by Magdalena Budziszewska, Aleksandra Kardaś and Zbigniew Bohdanowicz. The textbook dedicated to the course „Podstawy wiedzy o zmianie klimatu – perspektywa interdyscyplinarna”, as a part of the interdisciplinary initiative "UW for Climate", is available for download.
The textbook was created on the initiative of the scientists associated with the “UW for Climate” team, by 16 experts from the University of Warsaw and other academic centres, representing various fields of knowledge, such as physics, chemistry, biology, ecology, economics, psychology and engineering. Thus, it is an interdisciplinary textbook, just like the issue of climate change itself.
The textbook is addressed to the university students interested in the basics of knowledge about climate change, regardless of the field of their study, as well as to the high school students and teachers. The individual topics of the “Climate ABC” is related to such areas of school knowledge as physics, chemistry, biology and ecology, geography and social studies.
The book is divided into four parts, presenting the mechanisms of global warming (part 1), its causes (part 2), consequences (part 3) and actions that can prevent the most negative effects of climate change (part 4).
