Global warming: unsure plan of action

Fighting global warming is progressing slowly, very slowly. The predicament is the daunting economic implications. The pace of action is sluggish, not because the threat of global warming is misunderstood or underestimated, but because the astronomical cost of decarbonizing the economy would affect livelihoods, businesses, trade, jobs, incomes and above all: the inescapable inequality.

This book will explain with simple words what is at stake, what are the contingencies, what are the technical and economic shackles behind the unrelenting rise of CO2 emissions, and the current plan’s economic viability to contain global warming.
