Global Warming, Natural Hazards, and Emergency Management
Scientists predict the earth is facing 40-to-60 years of climate change, even if emissions of carbon dioxide and other global warming gases stopped today. One inevitable consequence of the greenhouse gases already in the atmosphere will be an increase in the frequency and severity of natural disaster events. Global Warming, Natural Hazards, and Emergency Management documents the imperative need for communities to prepare for the coming effects of climate change and provides a series of in-depth, road-tested recommendations on how to reduce risks for communities and businesses.
Frontline Advice for Increasing Defenses and Reducing Impacts of Global Warming
Authored and edited by emergency management and environmental protection professionals from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Sierra Club, this book offers case histories from communities across America that have successfully reduced the extent and consequences of natural disasters. These examples are becoming increasingly important to understand and replicate as the risks to communities created by a changing climate rise.
This book recognizes three fundamental principles essential to developing a disaster-prevention strategy:
The protection of natural systems is an important security measure
The reduction of disaster risk, not just response, is of great importance
Local communities must take the lead in prevention efforts
Provides Local Governments with Replicable Case Histories of Hazard Mitigation Efforts
This no-nonsense reference is a procedural roadmap for emergency managers, policy makers, and community officials. It explains how to develop community partnerships among a myriad of stakeholders; identifies staffing and resource requirements for successful programs; and provides a step-by-step demonstration of the disaster-planning process at the community level.

Growing bonsai trees from seed is surprisingly easy and can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Germination on many types of tree seed is good with a large percentage achieving germination if fresh seed of the correct types of seed are chosen.

How To Grow Your Own Bonsai Trees From Seed
Contrary to what many people may think growing trees from seed can be fast and growth is quite rapid on many varieties. Most of all this can be done on a small budget and in no time at all you will be able to have plenty of small trees of different varieties to grow and train into bonsai.

This eBook will teach you the basic principles of seed sowing, from how to choose the best varieties, whether to collect or buy the seed, and how to sow the seed with advice on caring for the seedlings. It will also give a description of how to treat all the most popular tree seed types for bonsai.

As a hobby, keeping bonsai is an extremely rewarding experience and when one grows the bonsai trees from seed it is even more so as you can develop a personal relationship with each tree having seen its development from germination to tree.

One of the main advantages of growing trees from seed is that it costs so little, and if the seeds are personally collected then there is no outlay at all which is even more satisfying.

Whether you live in a tropical country in the southern hemisphere or in a cool temperate region of the northern hemisphere, the treatment of seeds for sowing may be different.

What is common though is that you will be amazed and delighted at your collection of germinating tree seedlings which will continue to fascinate you as these quickly develop into larger young trees. This to me is what nature is all about.

There are many different types and classifications of tree seed. There are those which require a period of dormancy while others are best sown immediately. Some seeds may take several years to germinate while others will start sprouting within a week or two of being sown.

Chapters in the book are as follows:-

1) Introduction
2) Seed Types and Characteristics
3) Seed Treatments
4) What You Will Need
5) Collecting or Buying Your Seed
6) Storing Your Seed
7) Sowing Your Seed
8) Pricking Out and Potting On
9) Initial Pruning
10) Some of the Best Tree Varieties
11) Useful Links

This book has an active table of contents and a section with many links to excellent online suppliers of tree and other seeds, researched over many years by the author.
