Abstract:

Startling as the prospect of influencing climate on a global scale may seem, it is even more startling to realize that we may already be inadvertently influencing global climate, and that inadvertent consequences of human activity will increase manyfold in only a few decades. Moreover, rapidly growing pressures on world food production make the social consequences of climatic variation ever more serious. The inescapable conclusion is that purposeful management of global climatic resources will become necessary to prevent undesirable changes.
