“Climate Change” by Prof. R. R. Kelkar

Thumbnail Climate Change

Climate change has been described as the biggest challenge that the world will have to face in the twenty first century and developing countries like India will have to bear its impacts. Climate change is a complex issue that has scientific, political, economic, and social aspects. Prof. R. R. Kelkar’s book offers a holistic view of climatic change with a special reference to India and covers a wide range of topics including:

• Evidence of climate change
• Climate monitoring
• Climate modelling and prediction
• Impacts on glaciers, sea level and tropical cyclones
• Impacts on monsoon, agriculture and human health
• Politics and economics of climate change
• Preparing for the future

The book can serve as a textbook for university courses in atmospheric and environmental sciences, and as a source of reference for scientists and research workers and a storehouse of authentic information for all others interested in climate change.

    Respected Dr. Kelkar,
    Most humbly I would venture to put a question that will not the climate change itself be there to affect the state of health of the people of india as well as those in the rest of the planet along with the food security? your tone very much reflects that of the global warming sceptics.
    with regards,

      Dear Mr Samarasekhara,

      Thank you very much for your comment. Let me say that what I have put on my blog is only the preface. I hope you will read the book itself after it is released, which will be very soon. My aim in writing my book is neither to project a skeptic’s view of climate change nor that of a climate change enthusiast, but a balanced holistic view.

      Dear Pramod,

      My book on Climate Change is in English and not in Marathi. I am still working on it and the publication may take a few months.

      Thanks for your interest.
