About this book

Provides a comprehensive survey of social science tools and methods for analyzing climate change issues. The treatment is critical and the findings are that the mainstream tools - cost-benefit analysis, game theory, policy-oriented simulations, rational-actor risk and decision analysis, historical and archaeological analogues, and integrated assessment modelling - are presently incapable of providing a reliable basis for rational goal setting and policy implementation.
