In a new edition of his hard-hitting book Carbon Crunch on climate change, economist Dieter Helm looks at how and why we have failed to tackle the issue of global warming and argues for a new, pragmatic rethinking of energy policy.
"An optimistically levelheaded book about actually dealing with global warming."
– Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"[Dieter Helm] has turned his agile mind to one of the great problems of our age: why the world's efforts to curb the carbon dioxide emissions behind global warming have gone so wrong, and how it can do better."
– Pilita Clark, Financial Times
"A devastating analysis of why the world has failed to do much about global warming – and a plan for how markets can help governments do much better."
– David G. Victor, author of Global Warming Gridlock
'Professor [Helm's] ideas present a useful and worthwhile way forward.'
– Christopher Price, Land & Business.
