Book Review of Climate Change and Disaster Management by Ross Prizzia - Sentia Publishing
 
This book makes the case that many climate related scientists have provided data that confirm that burning fossil fuels has increased greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere, which has had a major impact on climate change.  Each of the six chapters provides many references and questions for review.
 
The first chapter emphasizes worldwide awareness of the relationship between climate change and disasters in the Asia Pacific region.  The following chapters cover such topics as climate change mitigation measures by government and the relationship between climate change and disaster preparedness, response, and recovery, the role of EPA and FEMA, actions taken by the Asian Bank and the probable future impact of climate change on mass migrations in the future.
 
This book is very readable and well documented throughout.   It could be used in a course that links climate change to various issues in disaster management or as a trade book for those interested in learning more about this important subject.
