Climate Solutions: A Citizen's Guide
Millions of Americans are demanding that all levels of government—local, state, and federal—take immediate and effective action to fight climate change. But there’s a big problem. Hundreds of policy ideas are floating about, and many of them aren’t very good. It’s quite possible that bad climate policy will result, and that many years will then be lost before real emission reductions occur.
We can’t afford to let that happen. That’s why this citizen’s guide is so important. It explains in clear and simple language what different climate policies will do—and what they won’t do. It tells you who’s behind the policies, who’d pay for them, and who’d profit. It strips away the spin and tells you the key facts you need to know.
In a very real sense, this guide ushers in the next stage of the global-warming debate. In the first stage, we discussed the problem. In the next stage, we must choose solutions. Should we adopt a carbon tax? A carbon cap? A trading system that allows companies to “offset” their emissions by paying others to plant trees?
This guide examines these proposals and many others. It’s essential reading for anyone who wants to stop climate change before it’s too late.

Good book, but the author lies when he pretends to be a truely good-hearted environmentalist without a money making agenda. He states in the introduction "about this guide" section (look it up before purchase on line)that the book is meant to be shared to help the climate and is offered online for free at www.onthecommons.org. I went to the website to pass it on to a friend of mine and the site directs you to another site where it is sold for $9.95 - NOT FREE TO PASS ON! This sounds like a waffling politician to me and I question his agenda and his facts.
