Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“There is no better guide to the thicket of climate change economics than this insightful new book by Ackerman and Stanton. They uncover where the bodies are buried in conventional economic modeling, and reinvigorate the dialog with a commonsense approach to the economics of this civilizational challenge.” —Eban Goodstein, Director and Faculty, Bard MBA in Sustainability, and Director, Bard Center for Environmental Policy

“Ackerman and Stanton have written a state-of-the-art economic analysis of the most important environmental issue of our time. They build a compelling case for moving quickly to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and for making fairness within and among nations a central element in how we do it.” —James Boyce, University of Massachusetts Amherst
