Review:

"The planet owes Nicholas Stern a big thank you...valuable and combative stuff" Guardian "If this year's climate crucial climate change negotiations are successful, this book will be required reading ... Lord Stern, like Al Gore, could be seen as one of the rock stars of global warming." -- Fiona Harvey Financial Times "Here is a user's manual for the planet that world leaders have only to follow and - safely, if only just in the nick of time - all our chestnuts will be pulled from the fire... Commendably light on jargon and abundantly clear in his conclusions" -- Richard Girling The Sunday Times "The Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen... [is] one of the most important international gatherings since the Second World War. Nicholas Stern gives a compelling account of why the meeting matters so much to the world, and outlines a global deal that would provide the ground rules for a safer planet" -- Richard Lambert, head of CBI and Chancellor of Warwick University "The Stern Review led the way in explaining the economic theory of climate change. His Blueprint sets out in practical terms why the world needs to act, what we need to do, and how, if we take action, we can build a new era of prosperity and growth." Adair Turner, Chairman of the FSA and Chairman of the Climate Change Committee
