This volume enables readers to understand the complexity associated with climate change policy and the science behind it. For example, the author describes the criticism and defense of the widely known "hockey stick" temperature graph derived from combining instrumental data and proxy temperature indications using tree ring, ice core and other paleoclimatic data.
Readers will also learn that global warming cannot easily be avoided by reducing CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions in rich countries. Not only is emissions reduction extremely difficult in rich countries, but demands such as

Produktbeschreibung
This volume enables readers to understand the complexity associated with climate change policy and the science behind it. For example, the author describes the criticism and defense of the widely known "hockey stick" temperature graph derived from combining instrumental data and proxy temperature indications using tree ring, ice core and other paleoclimatic data.

Readers will also learn that global warming cannot easily be avoided by reducing CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions in rich countries. Not only is emissions reduction extremely difficult in rich countries, but demands such as the UN mandate to improve the lives of the poorest global citizens cannot be satisfied without significantly increasing global energy use, and CO2 emissions. Therefore, the author asserts that climate engineering and adaptation are preferable to mitigation, particularly since the science is less than adequate for making firm statements about the Earth's future climate.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:
"The book begins with mathematical modeling of both environmental and economic factors associated with global climate change. The well-produced volume is packed with documentation, tables, figures, equations, and commentary. ... The author offers clear, incisive assessments of models and policy responses to climate change. ... provides a wealth of factual data, economic relationships, and provocative ideas. It is the best available devil's advocate resource for advanced students, experts, and practitioners in the area of climate science and policy. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and above." (F. T. Manheim, Choice, Vol. 50 (7), March, 2013)
