Global Deal: Climate Change and the Creation of a New Era of Progress and Prosperity (09 Edition)by Nicholas Stern
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
In October 2006, Nicholas Stern, one of the greatest economists and public intellectuals of our day, made headlines around the world with his report, which reviewed the costs and benefits of dealing with global warming. The worlds community has learned that it must act to mitigate global climate change, but until the Stern Review, no one knew how much it would cost, and how to do it.
Now, Stern has transformed his report into a powerful narrative book for general readers. The Global Deal evaluates the economic future, and the essential steps we must take to protect growth and reduce poverty while managing climate change.
The future Stern outlines is optimistic and pragmatic; he believes we have the capacity and creativity to change. But we need the will to inspire our political leaders to drive a new global strategy.
A world-renowned economists authoritative assessment of the price of global warming vividly illuminates the scale of the problem, the urgency to address it now, and where—and how—to begin
