Published in cooperation with the Los Baños campus of the University of the Philippines, the magisterial book, Changing Philippine Climate: Impacts on Agriculture and Natural Resources, presents the state of the knowledge on the adverse effects of man-made global warming on various physical features of the Philippine territory, focusing in particular on the weather, topographical, and aquatic systems, including their uniquely threatened biodiversities. Authored by a gathering of eminent Filipino scientists, this book is made even more salient by its inclusion of mitigation and adaptation strategies, as well as risk management recommendations, directed mostly at local and national structures of governance. True to its empirical commitment, however, this book never loses sight of the overall global picture of the urgent global problem, and thus invites the critical-minded reader to appreciate the complexity of the geopolitical situation within which any future—and necessarily geopolitically informed—solutions to this ecological emergency must be framed.
