“Global Climate Change”—Monograph for Secondary Schools

The first goal of this project was to translate a booklet on global climate change produced by the Italian Consorzio Interuniversitario Nazionale (INCA) from Italian into English, Spanish, and Portuguese. The booklet, titled La Chimica per L’Ambiente, constitutes one of the early chapters of the senior secondary textbook Introduction to Green Chemistry, which will be produced by INCA as part of its Green Chemistry Series. The monograph is gaining considerable popularity in Italy and has been adopted by numerous science teachers for inclusion in their curriculum. The translations permit for a wider distribution, including to parts of Europe, UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and most countries in North and South America.

In the original version of the booklet, the “Perspectives” section was dedicated to the Kyoto protocol and issues closely tied to Europe and Italy. In the translations, this section was updated and customized to address issues facing each user country.
The English, Spanish, and Portuguese translations were published by INCA in July 2007 and are now available online at <www.incaweb.org/publications/papers.php>.

More recently, as part of IUPAC project 2007-035-1-300, work on a translation into Romanian was initiated. This latest project is headed by Aurelia Pascariu from the Romanian Academy, Institute of Chemistry of Timisoara.
