Global Climate Change And Natural Resources: Summaries Of He 2007-2008 Scientific Literature. As we approach the 2008 US presidential elections, global climate change is becoming a regular topic in the news, and its effects on natural resources, both direct and indirect, are becoming increasingly evident. The most recent problem is global food shortages resulting from a combination of climate change-induced crop failures and diversion of much of the US corn crop from food to fuel.

This paper presents an empirical analysis of the effects of global warming on Nigerian agriculture and estimation of the determinants of adaptation to climate change. Data used for this study are from both secondary and primary sources. The set of secondary sources of data helped to examine the coverage of the three scenarios (1971-1980; 1981-1990 and 1991-2000). There is a growing consensus in the scientific literature that in the coming decades the world will witness higher temperatures and changing precipitation levels. The effects of this will lead to low/poor agricultural products. Evidence has shown that climate change has already affecting crop yields in many countries (IPCC, 2007; Deressa et al, 2008; BNRCC, 2008). This is particularly true in low-income countries, where climate is the primary determinant of agricultural productivity and adaptive capacities are low (SPORE, 2008; Apata et al, 2009).

Global climate change is suddenly a regular topic in the evening news, thanks partly to the success of Al Gore's film, "An Inconvienent Truth" and partly because of the latest round of summary reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, both of which occurred while this book was being written. Behind this news is a rising tide of new scientific information about global warming and its effects derived from ice cores in polar regions, sediment cores elsewhere, global climate computer models, and a virtual wave of ecological studies. This book is a series of summaries of some 200 of the most important scientific papers published on these subjects in 2006 and 2007. Our intent is to capture the full scientific significance of this literature in brief journalistic summaries accessable to the lay reader. They can be read in any order, and the format invites browsing for topics of particular current interest.
