  • - og hvad de kan lære os om os selv
    af Kristian Cedervall Lauta
    222,95 kr.

    KATASTROFER – og hvad de kan lære os om os selv giver læseren et sjældent indblik i, hvordan mennesker og samfund reagerer på og i katastrofer. Tag med på en hæsblæsende tur igennem globale pandemier, klimaforandringer, askeskyer, orkaner og jordskælv og opdag, hvordan disse katastrofer afslører centrale sider af de samfund, vi lever i – sider som vi før var blinde for. I bogens seks kapitler behandles nogle af de mest grundlæggende spørgsmål forbundet til at være menneske: den menneskelige natur, samfundets opbygning, ret og retfærdighed, vores evne til at forandre os, og hvad fremtiden bringer. Igennem cases og eksempler fra den seneste samfundsvidenskabelige forskning undersøger den danske katastrofeforsker, hvad der gemmer sig under vores gode opdragelse og hverdagsrutiner: Hvem vi elsker, hvad vi prioriterer, hvad vi er bange for – og hvorfor. Hvis du vil forstå den katastrofe, Danmark har været i det seneste år – og hvad den gør ved os som samfund og folk – er dette tankevækkende værk et godt sted at starte.

  • - En historie om vores fremtid
    af David Wallace-Wells
    165,95 - 227,95 kr.

    Vi ved godt, det ikke rigtig er, som det skal være. Vi støder på historierne drypvist. Ser dem tale om opvarmning i nyhederne. Læser om havniveauet i avisen. Hører, at nogen taler om klimaflygtninge. Men intet sted får vi det fulde billede. Og det går ikke mere. For det er værre, meget værre, end vi måske tror. David Wallace-Wells bog ‘Den ubeboelige klode’ er blevet et fænomen. I en på én gang ængstelig og dybt indigneret (næsten rasende) bevægelse, vælger han at se klimaforandringerne og konsekvenserne i øjnene. Baseret på massiv research af de data, vi har, og interview med de forskere, der ved mest, tegner Wallace-Wells et billede af, hvad det faktisk betyder for vores klode, civilisation og fremtid, hvis temperaturerne stiger de 4 grader på 100 år, FN siger kommer – eller de 5, 6 eller måske 8 grader, forskerne frygter. Det første, vi må indse, er, at langsomheden i klimaforandringerne er en myte. De forandringer, vi kommer til at se, inden vi har betalt huslånet færdig og vores børn har fået studenterhue på, vil være enorme og ødelæggende – selv ud fra konservative forudsigelser. Når vi bliver gamle, vil vores verden og samfund være gennemgribende forandret, og vi vil kunne se malariamyg flyve i Københavns gader (hvis byen stadig er oven vande), mens massive strømme af mennesker er på flugt, fordi store dele af vores planet ikke længere kan være hjem for nogen. Millionbyer og handelscentre vil synke under vand. Skovbrande æde sig igennem verdens lunger. Infrastruktur som el og rindende vand være en luksus. Verden vil mangle mad. Spørgsmålet er, om vi når at gøre bare lidt, noget, eller ingenting? Ansvaret hviler hos én generation. Vi har kendt til klimaforandringerne i over 30 år. I den tid har verden udledt halvdelen af al CO2 udledt i verdenshistorien. Du og jeg er gået ind i vor tids største krise med lukkede øjne. Det er tid at åbne dem.

    Verden under vand foregår på vores egen jord i den nære fremtid, på et tidspunkt hvor ekstreme klimaforandringer har forvandlet det meste af jordkloden til en tropisk sump. Mennesket er fortrængt til de arktiske egne i nord og syd, og byerne ligger under vand. Men nogle enkelte er blevet tilbage. Draget af solen og det nye klimas eksplosive vegetation er de i gang med at undersøge og tilpasse sig en ny økologi, der fører dem tilbage i tiden mod en anden bevidsthedstilstand og en ny samhørighed med naturen.J.G. Ballards sci-fi-klassiker foregriber de aktuelle planetariske forandringer og giver et uafrysteligt billede af verden efter katastrofen.

    En kæmpe skygge rejser sig foran mig. Bjørnen i al sin grusomme vælde. To en halv meter høj. Mindst 500 kilo. Hele kroppen indhyldet i mørk, tyk, filtret pels. Den står på bagbenene, og jeg kan nu se, at den er såret. Den har to dybe stik fra piggene ved den venstre skulder. I mit stille sind håber jeg, at den er venstrehåndet, så den gigantiske højrelab ikke dur til noget. At den mest er til pynt.Kristian deltager i TV-programmet "Alene i vildmarken", da katastrofen indtræffer. Al strøm forsvinder, og han er nu strandet i Nordnorge uden kontakt med omverdenen.

  • af Emmanuel Carrère
    268,95 kr.

    Historien begynder på Sri Lanka i 2004. Den franske forfatter Emmanuel Carrère holder juleferie med Hélène og deres sammenbragte børn i et forsøg på at puste liv i et lidt træt forhold. Så kommer tsunamien. Som de overlever. I første omgang er de lykkelige over alle at være sluppet uskadt men rystes kort efter af mødet med en fransk familie hvis lille datter er druknet. Efter parrets hjemkomst til Frankrig følger snart en anden død. Juliette Hélènes søster taber kampen mod en kræftsygdom. Carrère der ikke har været specielt tæt på Juliette beslutter sig for at skrive historien om hendes liv. Han påbegynder en veritabel research; fører lange samtaler med hendes mand opsøger også hendes nærmeste kollega der ligesom hun selv er undersøgelsesdommer. Fortalt som var det en roman vokser et ømt og nøgternt portræt frem både af Juliette og hendes verden og af fortælleren selv. Andre liv end mit er et mesterstykke i den romangenre man kalder autofiction. Det er samtidig en betagende hyldest til det ekstraordinære i det almindelige til hverdagen og til den måde vi alle sammen griber ind i hinandens liv en roman som det lykkes at gøre det litteraturen søger: at genskabe virkeligheden. Emmanuel Carrère (f. 1957) er fransk forfatter. På dansk er tidligere kun udkommet romanen Modstanderen i 2001. Han har modtaget flere priser for sine bøger som bliver udgivet i en lang række lande.

    Vi præsenteres dagligt og endeløst for nyheder om krige katastrofer og internationale konflikter formfuldendt præsenteret i korte letforståelige velfortalte og overskuelige TV- og radioindslag eller artikler. Men hvordan omsættes vilde og kaotiske realiteter under ekstreme forhold til velfungerende nyhedspakker? Hvordan arbejder man i det blodige og ofte nærmest ubeskrivelige virvar der er nyhedsindslagenes råmateriale? Hvad gør man rent praktisk når der hverken er mad vand elektricitet eller helt elementær sikkerhed? Thomas Ubbesen tager i denne bog læseren med ind i den kaotiske og ofte farlige verden hvor internationale nyheder bliver til. Udsendt består af 22 beretninger om det der ikke nødvendigvis kommer i æteren når reportagen bliver til under de allermest ekstreme forhold. Thomas Ubbesen født 1956 har arbejdet indenfor praktisk taget alle former for skreven og elektronisk journalistik fra begyndelsen af 80erne siden starten af 90erne i stigende grad med fokus på internationale konflikter krige naturkatastrofer og storpolitik. Han har fra 1994 arbejdet på DRs udlandsredaktioner og blandt andet været udsendt til en række krige på Balkan til invasionen af Irak og den efterfølgende besættelse af landet til naturkatastrofer i Burma Haiti og Pakistan og til flere krige i Libyen Libanon Den Centralafrikanske Republik Afghanistan og Ukraine.

    The Bay of Bengal is prone to tropical cyclones and storm surges as a result of its location, and many of the mostly poor people living along the coastal regions of South Asia lose their lives almost every year. These disasters have been particularly devastating and have caused serious damage. During the past five decades, the low-lying coastal and offshore islands have experienced a tragic history of 50 severe cyclones and storm surges, with more than one million victims dead or missing. People accepted and waited for the next disaster as they had no alternatives. Members of the poor families who survived the disasters experienced hard times recovering from damage and the loss of their loved ones. After disasters, epidemic diseases arise in the affected areas. Many of the people in distress are also deprived of public services. Providing all sorts of assistance and emergency health preparedness are most essential to overcome such a situation. The causes of these huge casualties have been mainly: (1) the high population density of costal settlements, (2) inadequate cyclone shelters in the disaster risk areas, (3) lack of awareness of the disaster risk by the vulnerable population, (4) deterministic attitudes of people who accept disasters as "e;fate"e;, (5) houses that are weakly constructed and (6) underdeveloped central awareness programmes and weather forecast systems. This book is based on an empirical study presenting a timeline analysis of major cyclones and their impacts and consequent losses through the super-cyclones in the disaster-prone coastal regions of India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. This study also investigates resilience mechanisms based on early warning systems, technology applications including GIS and remote sensing, best practices, success stories and case studies that can be used for effective cyclone management and development of a resilience mechanism among coastal communities.

    The management of data to understand complex and interwoven processes of sustainable development has been a great challenge for researchers, planners, and decision makers. Remote sensing and GIS-based policy decision support systems not only help them to solve spatially related environmental and socio-economic issues; they also provide a powerful tool for integrating spatial and non-spatial datasets with analytical and spatial models and knowledge domains. Recent advances in the modern spatial tools of remote sensing and GIS combined with advanced computation techniques have enhanced the efficiency and capabilities of policy development. This book expands the scientific knowledge base in various physical and socio-economic issues among scholars, planners, and decision makers for policy development and research regarding sustainable development. It also demonstrates the importance of modern spatial decision support tools of remote sensing and GIS to better understand sustainable development processes and policy development. Furthermore, the book discusses case studies providing new insights as to how remote sensing and GIS-based decision support systems contribute to understanding physical and socio-economic processes and developing pragmatic policy for sustainable development.This book covers land surface temperature, hydrological processes, terrain mapping, flood and landslide hazards, land use and land cover dynamics, crime hotspots, urban health issues, tourism, agriculture, forest management, flood mitigation, urban sprawl, and village information systems, among others. Readers will find this book to be an invaluable resource for understanding and solving diverse physical and human issues for policy development related to sustainable planning and management.

    This textbook shows all the existing knowledge about coastal geology and its implications for coastal management. In the last decades, the geological sciences have been supplying exciting information about the coastal systems, not only from its dynamics but also providing a sedimentary concept to understand and interpret the preserved coastal stratigraphical record. Furthermore, recent investigations have been focused on the prevention of coastal hazards like storms, tsunamis, or sea-level fluctuation. This discipline has an increasing interest after the expanding human activities around the coasts worldwide. The present trend is that many of the problems raised by the coast-human interaction must be resolved by using the Integrated Coastal Zone Management.The chapters of this book have a double-level structure. The first part of each chapter contains the necessary information for undergraduate courses studying coastal geology. The second part includes advanced information and examples to be used by graduate students and novel professionals.

    This volume examines how local communities respond and adapt to ecological changes and disasters resulting from climate change. The main aim of the book is to understand the range of human responses to ecological change and to contextualise the reasons for adopting any particular adaptive strategy by a community. Through the help of specific case studies presented as individual chapters, the book aims to find out whether adaptation due to environmental stress is an individual decision and, therefore, is an isolated phenomenon, or if resilience and adaptation are part of the same action paradigm of society as a whole in response to environmental change. Of particular interest are the case studies of climate change or disasters that have rendered the site unsuitable for the return of its community at present, and thus necessitated the relocation of such communities to new locations. The case studies in the book focus on regions in India, but cover different parts of the world as well, and address concepts of resilience, vulnerability, risk, adaptation, and mitigation. The book will be useful for students and researchers in the fields of geography, disaster management, environmental science, and anthropology.

    This volume contains studies of one particular category of risky situations, namely, those involving highly negative consequences with low probabilities. Situations of this type involve both natural and man-made disasters (e.g. floods, technological hazards, economic crises, epidemics, etc.). Such risks are characterized by two features: (1) they occur relatively rarely (the probability of their occurrence is very low) and (2) they have extremely negative consequences (they are catastrophic). Such events generally cannot be prevented, but one can both try to anticipate them and undertake actions aimed at ameliorating their negative consequences. Consequently, the first part of the book is devoted to risk perception issues. It includes studies devoted to the following questions which arise when people have to deal with probabilities, and small probabilities in particular: How can probabilistic information be communicated effectively? What is the impact of emotions on perceptions of, and reactions to, probabilistic information? Other relevant issues are also discussed. The second part of the book is devoted to protection and insurance against risk. Thus, it includes studies answering the following questions: What determines a person's willingness to take preventive actions in areas susceptible to severe flooding? How do people form their own risk estimates?Research presented in the book extends our knowledge of human behavior in situations characterized by large risks and low probabilities, leading to better comprehension of the functioning of cognitive and affective processes in perception and decision making in situations where uncertainty and risk are accompanied by highly negative consequences.

    What is the relationship between education and natural disasters? Can education play a role in ameliorating and mitigating them, preparing people in how to respond, and even helping to prevent them? If so, how?Drawing on research carried out in a number of different countries, including Australia, China, India, Japan, the UK and the USA, the contributors consider the role of education in relation to natural disasters. The case studies expand conceptual and empirical understandings of the understudied relationship between education and natural disasters and uncover the potential and the limitations of education for mitigating, responding to, and potentially preventing, natural disasters. The contributors also consider the extent to which so-called natural disasters, such as mudslides caused by deforestation and flooding areas built on known flood plains, are linked to human behaviour and how education can impact on these.

    The Indian Ocean Tsunami, which devastated 70 percent of Sri Lanka's coastline and killed an estimated 35,000 people, was remarkable both for the magnitude of the disaster and for the unprecedented scale of the relief and recovery operations mounted by national and international agencies. The reconstruction process was soon hampered by political patronage, by the competing efforts of hundreds of foreign humanitarian organizations, and by the ongoing civil war.The book is framed within this larger political and social context, offering descriptions and comparisons between two regions (southwest vs. eastern coast) and four ethnic communities (Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims, and Burghers) to illustrate how disaster relief unfolded in a culturally pluralistic political landscape. Approaching the issue from four disciplinary perspectives - anthropology, demography, political science, and disaster studies - chapters by experts in the field analyse regional and ethnic patterns of post-tsunami reconstruction according to different sectors of Sri Lankan society. Demonstrating the key importance of comprehending the local cultural contexts of disaster recovery processes, the book is a timely and useful contribution to the existing literature.
