Informations and abstract
After the failure of the Copenhagen Climate Conference in December 2009 the world's policy makers have to identify new policy options to prevent global warming. The expert authors in Smart Solutions to Climate Change by Bjørn Llkborg, focus on the likely costs and benefits of a very wide range of policies, including geo-engineering, mitigation of CO2, methane and «black carbon», expanding forest, research and development of low-carbon energy and encouraging green technology transfer. For each policy, the authors outline the costs, benefits and likely outcomes, in chapters accompanied by shorter, critical alternative perspectives. The attractiveness of the policy options described are moreover evaluated and ranked by a panel of economists, including three Nobel laureates.
