Description
Summary:In recent years, world climate changes have drawn more attention than at any other time in history. What we once called "crazy weather," just a few years ago, is now beginning to be seen as a part of a logical and, in part, predictable pattern, an awesome natural force that we must deal with if man is to avoid disaster of unprecedented proportions. Climates of Hunger is a book of paramount importance for our time. It will be essential reading not only for professionals in the field--including agricultural meteorologists, political scientists, geographers, sociologists, and business counselors--but for all who are concerned in any way with environmental trends, world and domestic food supplies, and their effects on human institutions.
