  • A Farewell To Ice: A Report From The Arctic.  By Peter Wadhams; 2017; Written by a highly credible Arctic researcher.  Some technical material but well understood by the general educated public.  We highly recommend this as a must read.
  • Rising Tides: Climate Refugees in the Twenty-First Century - by John Tideshn R. Wennersten and Denise Robbins; 2017  A good non-technical read but a lot of the material has been covered in other non-technical books on climate change.
  • The West without Water: What Past Floods, Droughts, and Other Climatic Clues Tell Us about Tomorrow -  by B. Lynn Ingram and Frances Malamud-Roam; 2013.  Written by scientists - not just another popular book on climate change.
  • NOAA and NASA websites on Climate Change:   https://www.climate.gov/;   https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/ipcc/ ;  https://climate.nasa.gov/
  • "The Age  of Consequences" obtain from Amazon  (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XFZ1GVG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_ep_dp_4FcXzbH1WEC7J)  or itunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/the-age-of-consequences/id1213578427).   It is about climate change and global security and coincidently the  movie and our South Asia report compliment each other covering the same  or similar issues.  And they,  like us, target South Asia as the global  hot spot.
