About this book

Climate change is big business. Much of the money so-called green policies cost us goes straight into the pockets of a bewildering range of special interests. Around the world companies are making billions out of the schemes governments have put in place saying they will curb global warming and protect us from the threat of climate change. There is little evidence that those policies are an efficient way to cut emissions. They simply do not represent good value, and the public are right to be sceptical. In "Let Them Eat Carbon" Matthew Sinclair looks at the myths perpetuated by the burgeoning climate change industry, examines the individual policies and the potentially disastrous targets being put into place by ambitious politicians, and proposes a more realistic alternative.

This book offers a great insight into the increasingly important but poorly understood world of climate change policy. Anyone who wants to understand how they are affected, and what can be done about the gross failure and exorbitant cost of politicians' attempts to curb greenhouse gas emissions, will find it invaluable.
- Lord Lawson, author of "An Appeal to Reason"
