Global Warming: Global Policy?

Synopsis
Examines the course of the climate change debate and discovers some of the emerging results of global warming and its policy implications. Complex computer models predict climate forecasts for the next century with some potentially serious outcomes. While there is general scientific consensus that climate change is occurring, the relationship between the science and subsequent policy implementation is highly complex. Governments from around the world have had differing responses to the threat of climate change, and although many countries are trying to move forward, some have not even recognised the issue.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
