Inhaltsangabe

If you had a 10-percent chance of having a fatal car accident, you'd take necessary precautions. If your finances had a 10-percent chance of suffering a severe loss, you'd reevaluate your assets. So if we know the world is warming and there's a 10-percent chance this might eventually lead to a catastrophe beyond anything we could imagine, why aren't we doing more about climate change right now? We insure our lives against an uncertain future - why not our planet?

In Climate Shock Gernot Wagner and Martin Weitzman explore in lively, clear terms the likely repercussions of a hotter planet, drawing on and expanding from work previously unavailable to general audiences. They show that the longer we wait to act, the more likely it is that an extreme event will happen. A city might go underwater.

What we know about climate change is alarming enough. What we don't know about the extreme risks could be far more dangerous. Wagner and Weitzman help listeners understand that we need to think about climate change in the same way that we think about insurance - as a risk-management problem, only here on a global scale.

Demonstrating that climate change can and should be dealt with - and what could happen if we don't do so - Climate Shock tackles the defining environmental and public policy issue of our time.

Kritikerstimmen

"Grover Gardner, one of the most accomplished and experienced audiobook performers, presents the authors' clear-eyed and broad-ranging economic analysis of the consequences of climate change.... As always, Gardner's voice is clear and perfectly paced. He provides the listener with the time to absorb new ideas without seeming too slow. A great narration of an important book." (AudioFile)
