Overview

"The Kyoto Protocol, the world's first tentative step towards avoiding the threat of climate change, has failed. We urgently need a new course of action." In Kyoto2 Oliver Tickell presents us with a solution. The funds generated from a system of finite production rights for greenhouse gases, which would be traded on a global auction, could be poured back into healing the wounds inflicted by climate change. In his combination of idealism with proposals based on economics, Tickell exposes the flaws in current approaches and envisions a fairer and more effective system.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The most intelligent treatment of the politics and economics of climate change I have ever read.  Brilliant, clear and unanswerable”—George Monbiot

"Tickell's background helps him pack an astonishing wealth of data and nontrivial analyses of complex issues into this small volume...This volume will be valuable for undergraduate and graduate students in environmental science and policy, and essential for faculty and professionals... Highly recommended." —CHOICE
