In Global Warming: Looking beyond Kyoto, some of the best-known and respected authorities in climate policy-including members of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)-provide a comprehensive agenda for global collective action. Representing both industrialized and developing nations, the contributors present a thought-provoking examination of the economic, social, and political context of climate policy within their countries.
With Kyoto's emissions targets set to expire in 2012, these authors call for a multilateral approach that goes beyond the mitigation-focused Kyoto policies, balancing them with strategies for adaptation.
This book brings together many of the leading thinkers on climate change science, economics, and politics. It is one-stop shopping for a synopsis of the major debates and challenges surrounding efforts to craft a global response to this enormously complex problem. Billy Pizer, Resources for the Future
"Each contribution brings a special perspective, and the very diversity of the views expressed makes this a must read for all interested in the complex challenges of climate change." Kemal Dervis, United Nations Development Program
