About this book

Climate change and justice are so closely associated that many take it for granted that a global climate treaty should - indeed, must - directly address both issues together. But, in fact, this may be a serious mistake, one that would actually make the world's poor and developing nations far worse off. This is the central argument of this book.

Media reviews
Anyone taking part in the next round of climate negotiations in Mexico in December should take this book with them. It is ... certainly a guide. Legislating for the future is always tricky. This area is trickier than most. -- Sir Crispin Tickell, Financial Times [T]his book is a potent attack on an argument that is growing rapidly in popularity yet declining in clarity and focus... Chapter 1 provides what must be one of the most comprehensive, comprehensible, and yet still succinct accounts of the science of anthropogenic climate change currently in print. -- Jamison E. Colburn, Concurring Opinions blog
