Overview

Based on the 1997 conference organized by the Kellog Environmental Research Center and sponsored by the Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, Global Climate Change presents the views of key players in the debate over global climate change policy. Like the conference, Hoffman's book seeks to promote continued dialogue on the economic and strategic implications of climate change policy by presenting perspectives from all parties. Contributors include Dirk Forrister, the chairman of the White House Climate Change Task Force, and Tim Wirth, the Undersecretary of State for Global Affairs. Other participants are top representatives from concerned industries (automobile, energy, financial, forestry and paper, and oil) environmental organizations and academic institutions. The contributors to Global Climate Change consider opportunities for common ground and explore how industry can work together with other stakeholders to assure that meaningful goals are set and achieved. Hoffman's book considers the implications of climate change policy from the participants' respective interests and explores how policy can be constructed in a way that will achieve environmental goals while minimizing costs.
