About this book

George W. Bush's refusal to sign the Kyoto treaty was openly based on protecting corporate profit, not protecting the public good. But with scientists claiming that pollution must be cut by at least 15 percent by the year 2050 whilst current gas emissions are still rising drastically, something must be done. Thoroughly explaining the environmental problem and the ethical and political constraints on implementing solutions, the author argues that global environmental justice and economic realism must be factored together in order to advance a climate protocol that puts public good before big business.
