In a new edition of his hard-hitting book on climate change, economist Dieter Helm looks at how and why we have failed to tackle the issue of global warming and argues for a new, pragmatic rethinking of energy policy.
 
“An optimistically levelheaded book about actually dealing with global warming.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“[Dieter Helm] has turned his agile mind to one of the great problems of our age: why the world’s efforts to curb the carbon dioxide emissions behind global warming have gone so wrong, and how it can do better.”—Pilita Clark, Financial Times

Dieter Helm is professor of energy policy, University of Oxford; fellow in economics at New College, Oxford; and professorial research fellow at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, Oxford. He is chair of the world’s first Natural Capital Committee.

"A devastating analysis of why the world has failed to do much about global warming - and a plan for how markets can help governments do much better."—David G. Victor, author of Global Warming Gridlock
