An incredibly thorough, and interesting assessment of climate change policy. One of the better nonfiction books in recent years.
The information is interesting. However, the book in centered on economics, all is reduced to GDP. But, life is more than GDP and economic prosperity. A little more discussion on the actual expected damage to the ecosystems would be helpful. The reliability of the models is a big question mark, and that should impact many of the conclusions of the book. Moreover, some of them seem to be quite weak in my opinion. For example, it evaluates the benefits of contraception funding by estimating the reduction in the number of baby deaths. Obviously if babies are not born, they cannot die. On the other hand, he does not evaluate the negative effects of fewer births in innovation. Less brains, less ideas, and less innovation. That is just one example that makes me think purely economic models have many weaknesses.
