* Climate Shock: The Economic Consequences of a Hotter Planet (2015-03-09)

Environmental Defense Fund – “What we know about climate change is bad. What we don’t know is worse. Think of a bathtub as the earth’s atmosphere. The flow represents carbon emissions. The drain is how our planet absorbs those emissions. When we started burning coal, we in effect, turned the flow on full. Now the drain can’t keep up and we’re paying the price: in storms, and droughts, and property damage. Keeping carbon emissions level year after year won’t keep the tub from overflowing. We have to turn down the faucet. Climate Shock is a new book by Gernot Wagner, Senior Economist for Environmental Defense Fund, and Martin Weitzman, Economics Professor for Harvard University. Together, they make a simple argument for climate reform through rational, fact-based analysis of the risk of climate change. Learn more here: http://www.edf.org/Nci”
