From the PublisherMost of the vast swathes of books, articles, or blogs, written on climate change policy proceed on the basis as if politics is irrelevant. But it is politics that will determine whether we decarbonise the economy quickly and deeply enough to avoid disastrous climate change. In Climate Clever, Hugh Compston and Ian Bailey succinctly and powerfully think through the political logic of climate change to give us astrong sense of the sorts of actions politicians can take to reduce emissions without getting booted out of office, and the sorts of actions the rest of us can take to get politicians to move in the right direction.
Matthew Paterson, École d'études politiques, Université d'Ottawa, co-author (with Peter Newell) of Climate capitalism: global warming and the transformation of the global economy
"Essential reading for anyone concerned with the politics of climate change. The authors show how practical measures to limit carbon impact can be achieved even in the face of public indifference."
Anthony Giddens, former Director of the London School of Economics
