The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reflects the growing international consensus that the earth's climate is being changed by anthropogenic greenhouse gasses. Evidence presented by the IPCC and others points to the potential for increasingly dangerous weather, new disease outbreaks, regional water shortages, the loss of habitat and species, and other disturbing developments that could have profound social and economic impacts. Opinions on what should be done, however, remain sharply divided within and among countries. Though monumental in its efforts, the Kyoto Protocol has left much to be agreed upon and achieved, with the world's largest emitter of carbon dioxide—the United States—rejecting it. In G lobal Warming: Looking Beyond Kyoto , some of the best-known and respected authorities in climate policy provide a comprehensive agenda for global collective action. Representing both industrialized and developing nations, the contributors present a thought-provoking examination of the economic, social, and political context of climate policy within their countries. With Kyoto's emissions targets set to expire in 2012, these authors call for a multilateral approach that goes beyond the mitigation-focused Kyoto policies, balancing them with strategies for adaptation. They also stress the importance of generating policies that work within a time frame commensurate with that of climate change itself. Informed, insightful, and even-handed, this book gives a new impetus to the increasingly important global climate policy debate. Contributors include R.K. Pachauri (Energy Resources Institute and the IPCC), Richard S. Lindzen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Stefan Rahmstorf (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research), Stephen H. Schneider and Thomas Heller (Stanford University), Robert Mendelsohn and William D. Nordhaus (Yale University), Gernot Klepper and Sonja Peterson (Kiel Institute for World Economics), Robert N. Stavins (Harvard University), Alexander Golub (Environmental Defense), Howard Dalton (U.K. Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), John Stone (Carleton University, Ottawa), Jyoti Parikh (Integrated Research and Action for Development), and Shen Longhai (China Energy Conservation Association)

He was president of Mexico from 1994 until 2000.

Review:

"Each contribution brings a special perspective, and the very diversity of the views expressed makes this a must read for all interested in the complex challenges of climate change." —Kemal Dervis, United Nations Development Program



"This book brings together many of the leading thinkers on climate change science, economics, and politics. It is one-stop shopping for a synopsis of the major debates and challenges surrounding efforts to craft a global response to this enormously complex problem." —Billy Pizer, Resources for the Future



"With customary skill, Ernesto Zedillo has assembled a penetrating collection of international perspectives on what to do next about the most important challenge of our time —global warming and the resulting climate change. As nations look beyond the Kyoto Protocol to more serious action, this volume will be both timely and extremely helpful." —James Gustave Speth, Yale University, author of Red Sky at Morning: America and the Crisis of the Global Environment



"This is an extremely important and timely book on global warming and the way to solve it. It contains much that you need to know about climate change, including scientific evidence that it is the by-product of human beings, comments by those who question this fact, and analyses of political options for the post-Kyoto Protocol period. We have entered an era when the leaders of the world must face this global problem. Will they be able to solve it? After reading this book, you will be better prepared to answer that question." —Ricardo Lagos, Club de Madrid and former President of Chile



" Global Warming is a well-organized, balanced, and informative addition to the growing canon of post-Kyoto Protocol monographs. Recommended." — CHOICE



"Of interest to a wide range of scholars and the general public, this book provides a thorough and well-rounded overview of the myriad issues embedded within global climate policy discourse, as well as a discussion of the scientific evidence for anthropogenic climate change." —Alison Ashlin, Oxford University Centre for the Environment, Environmental Conservation



"Climate change is gradually moving up the policy agenda in many countries.... It is a multi-faceted issue, to which this book provides an excellent introduction." — Foreign Affairs
