Overview

It's been nearly four decades since scientists first recognized future global warming. Why can't we act decisively to limit greenhouse gases, deforestation, and catastrophic warming trends? Why are we still addicted to fossil fuels? Have we all just been fiddling for 40 years as the world burns around us?


Stephen H. Schneider pieces together events like a detective story, revealing that as expert consensus on climate change grew, special interests seized on scientific uncertainty to block any effective response. In this book, he outlines a plan to avert the building threat and develop a positive, practical policy that will bring climate change back under our control, help the economy with a new generation of green energy jobs and productivity, and reduce the dependence on unreliable exporters of oil.
