About this product
- DescriptionThe 2nd edition of An Introduction to Climate Change Ecomics and Policy explains the key scientific, ecomic and policy issues related to climate change in a completely up-to-date introduction for anyone interested, and students at all levels in various related courses, including environmental ecomics, international development, geography, politics and international relations. FitzRoy and Papyrakis highlight how ecomists and policymakers often misunderstand the science of climate change, underestimate the growing threat to future civilization and survival and exaggerate the costs of radical measures needed to stabilize the climate. In contrast, they show how direct and indirect costs of fossil fuels - particularly the huge health costs of local pollution - actually exceed the investment needed for transition to an almost zero carbon ecomy in two or three decades using available techlogy.
