Summary
"Climate change will be an ecological and humanitarian catastrophe unless we moove quickly to eleiminate greenhouse gas emissions. Policy experts advise us that we need to make major changes to our lifestyles, and our governments need to agree to globally binding treaties and implement market iinstruments like carbon taxes. This advice is a mistake: it treats technological inovation as being at the periphery of the climate policy challenege. Instead, technological innovation needs to be at its core; we will phase out emissions when and only when the technologies to replace fossil fuels are good enough, and policies need to support these new technologies quickly and directly." back cover
