"Helm's credentials couldn't be more impressive...This intelligent though depressing tome should inform future debates."-Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly "An optimistically levelheaded book about actually dealing with global warming."-Kirkus, starred review Kirkus "The Carbon Crunch is a powerful and heartfelt plea for hard-nosed realism. And it also suggests a worrying truth - that the environmental movement is often more interested in pursuing a soft-focus vision of a greener world than in actually fixing climate change."-Fred Pearce, New Scientist -- Fred Pearce New Scientist "Dieter Helm's lucid assessment of the risks of climate change and what we can do about it, has attracted fierce criticism from Green groups - not for his diagnosis, with which they agree, but for his prescription. Helm is clear that man-made climate change is occurring; but he has no faith in renewables and argues that global agreements such as Kyoto are a waste of time ... Moreover, the best weapon against climate change is research and development - government-funded science will have to get us out of this, which means less cash for wind-farms. Sounds like common sense."-Brandon Robshaw, Independent on Sunday -- Brandon Robshaw Independent on Sunday "Dieter Helm's The Carbon Crunch [is] a forensically deadly attack on the failures and obfuscations of current debates on global warming. The world, he shows, now faces a 'carbon crunch', from which there is no pain-free exit. Helm's book should be compulsory reading for the entire political class as well as the bureaucratic elite and the commentariat."-David Marquand, New Statesman -- David Marquand New StatesmanPřečíst více...
