Studying Climate Change in India

Handbook of Climate Change and India:Development, Politics and Governance edited by Navroz K Dubash (New Delhi: Oxford University Press), 2011; pp xxiv + 400, Rs 1,250.

Notwithstanding the global in­ability to accept the challenge of reducing global warming and resultant climate change, these topics have rightly been the subject of numerous books published the world over in the past several years. The book by Dubash is an important addition to that list. Over the last decade the fundamental processes of global warming had emerged as a very serious divide bet­ween the near-unanimous consensus opinion that the present global warming is largely human-made, and that of a small but influential group of scientists described as the “denialists”.

Powell (2011) has argued that “in the denial of global warming, we are witnessing the most vicious, and so far most successful, attack on science in history”. Indeed, there is possibly no other topic that demands a higher level of public knowledge than global warming and c­limate change.
