Here are a few excerpts from the review:
. . . a new devastating book . . .The Financial Post also has published an excerpt from the book, focused on my discussion of the "iron law" of climate policy.
. . . Pielke’s review of the science uncertainties is deft and convincing . . .
The Climate Fix makes its way through these and other complex topics effectively and in a clear style. Average readers will learn much, but more important is that it should alert experts and policy wonks to the impossible policy structure that has been imposed on the world’s economy. . .
While there is reason for doubt about entrusting US$150-billion a year to governments to set global innovation agendas, it’s a policy option that’s got to be a lot better than the current UN fiasco.Meanwhile, it’s too bad the thousands of UN delegates in China today don’t have The Climate Fix in their briefcases. The futility of their efforts would become apparent. Prof. Pielke boldly promises that, if he has succeeded in his mission, readers will “never see the climate debate in the same way again.” He has succeeded, I think. There’s still time to get the message out before Cancun.
