New book looks for solutions beyond Kyoto
Climate change poses a multidimensional international challenge, one that eludes straightforward solutions. In Global Warming: Looking beyond Kyoto (Brookings and the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization, 2008), some of the best-known and respected authorities in climate policy—including members of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—provide a comprehensive agenda for global collective action. Representing both industrialized and developing nations, the contributors present a thought-provoking examination of the economic, social, and political context of climate policy within their countries.
“With customary skill, Ernesto Zedillo has assembled a penetrating collection of international perspectives on what to do next about the most important challenge of our time—global warming and the resulting climate change. As nations look beyond the Kyoto Protocol to more serious action, this volume will be both timely and extremely helpful."
—James Gustave Speth, Yale University, author of Red Sky at Morning: America and the Crisis of the Global Environment
