A new Handbook of Sustainable Energies edited by Kauffman and Lee just came out: 

"As global society confronts the challenges of diminishing resources, ecological degradation, and climate change, engineers play a crucial role designing and building technologies and products that fulfil our needs for utility and sustainability. The Handbook of Sustainable Engineering equips readers with the context and the best practices derived from both academic research and practical examples of successful implementations of sustainable technical solutions. The handbook’s content revolves around the two themes,  new ways of thinking and new business models, including sustainable production, products, service systems and consumption while addressing key assets based on new materials, optimized resource management, and new energy sources. Contributions reflect a focus on state-of-the art insights into employing smart materials, recycling e-waste, water utilization, solar cells, product lifecycles, transportation and reverse manufacturing. Supportive of this, underlying issues such as engineering education, consumer behaviour and the regulatory climate complete the handbook’s comprehensive treatment of the problems and most promising solutions."

Check out the new Springer Climate portal: http://www.springer.com/climate?SGWID=0-1755018-0-0-0; It contains all the new Springer publications on Climate (books, briefs, articles...). Let us know if you are interested in publishing a book on Climate (Climatology, Meteorology, Climate Change Impacts or Climate Change Management and Policy).

New open access article just published in Climatic Change journal: Insuring future climate catastrophes, by Kunreuther et al (May 2013, vol. 118, issue 2, 339-354). In this article the authors describe the influence of climatic change predictions on the insurance prices (case study Florida). Very interesting and very timely for Californian inhabitants: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10584-012-0625-z

The Sunderbans, spreading across West Bengal and Bangladesh, is fast emerging as the climate change flashpoint of the globe. Despite the warning signals of increased frequency of cyclones and tidal floods, the West Bengal government has drawn up a massive project to expand the Haldia port which will directly impact the western Sunderbans region. Environmentalists already complain against increasing oil spillage from vessels in and around the Mongia Port that are adversely affecting its biodiversity. Environmentalist Bittu Sahgal warns against the effects of oil spill on the growth and survival of the two species of trees (gewa and sundari) found in the Sunderbans. “Unless the state government, along with the Bangladesh government, takes decisive action, we are going to witness a bigger migration of climate refugees than what took place before the 1971 war,”.
