Title: Global warming and climate change: the legal, public and ecological health consequences.
Author: Smith, Joseph Wayne
Issue Date: 2009
School/Discipline: Law School
Abstract: This thesis by publication consists of three published books: (1) (with Professor David Shearman), Climate Change Litigation: Analysing the Law, Scientific Evidence and Impacts on the Environment, Health and Property, (Presidian Legal Publications, Adelaide, 2006); (2) (with Professor David Shearman), The Climate Change Challenge and the Failure of Democracy, (Praeger, Westport, 2007) and (3) (with Professor David Shearman and Sandro Positano), Climate Change as a Crisis in World Civilization: Why We Must Totally Transform How We Live, (Edwin Mellen Press, Lewiston, New York, 2007) (winner of the Adele Mellen Prize for distinguished contribution to scholarship). The works attempt to understand the human health consequences of global climate change from both a public and ecological health perspective and to address how practitioners of law and other cognitive disciplines, may collectively act to aid humanity in confronting the climate crisis. The candidate concludes that we must not only totally transform how we live, but how we think, in respond to a challenge which many authorities believe is one of the greatest threats that the human species has faced in thousands of years.
