Climate Change and Global Sustainability

A Holistic Approach

image of Climate Change and Global Sustainability
Climate change owing to global warming is a paramount concern for society in the 21st century, and it is not an issue that can be solved by individual academic or scientific disciplines working in isolation. Because climate change involves a wide range of interlinked problems, solutions must be pursued in an interdisciplinary manner. This book adopts just such a holistic approach in examining various aspects of global warming, and offers readers a comprehensive overview of the problem.



Future vision towards a sustainable society

We do not live alone. We exist in a stream of life from the past to the future. The human race was born and has evolved on Earth, and Earth, in turn, has evolved from the universe (Nakano, 1994: 107). Therefore, we have to regard ourselves as historical entities and remember that we are responsible for the future. It is always important to study the past when we learn new things.
