Global Climate Change: Turning Knowledge into Power by Dr. David Kitchen.
Dr. Kitchen, associate dean for strategic planning and professor in the School of Professional and Continuing Studies at the University of Richmond teaches courses in geology and climate and in 2013 published a textbook on climate change, Global Climate Change: Turning Knowledge into Action. The book summary reads as follows: the science of climate change is a complex subject that balances the physical record and scientific fact with politics, policy, and ethics and is of particular importance to the geosciences. Taking a cross-disciplinary approach, Dr. Kitchen examines not only the physical science, but the social, economic, political, energy, and environmental issues surrounding climate change. His goal: to turn knowledge into action, equipping citizens with the knowledge and critical skills to make informed decisions, separate facts from fiction, and participate in the public debate.
