Editorial Reviews

Review

" Greenhouse Governance addresses a profound national challenge: the linkage between U.S. climate governance, our national and international policies regarding energy, and our ever-present obligations involving our national security. Every citizen has a duty to learn about these present and future contingencies; this book is a valuable resource." —Senator John Warner (R-Va., retired)



"With international climate negotiations at an impasse, the responsibility to address climate change continues to fall to national, state, and local governments, many of which have demonstrated tremendous leadership and creativity. This timely volume brings together prominent experts to examine policy experience to date, both within the United States and beyond its borders. The result is invaluable insight into climate governance that works, as well as pitfalls to be avoided by U.S. policymakers." —Kathryn Harrison, University of British Columbia



"Climate change is one of the most complex and intensely debated issues of our day. Recognizing a need for comprehensive interdisciplinary analysis, the Miller Center of Public Affairs convened top scholars from political science, law, and history for the national conference which led to the publication of Greenhouse Governance. I know of no other treatment of the subject that more thoroughly or practically presents the big-picture implications of climate change governance concerns and the strategies for addressing them" —Gerald L. Baliles, former Governor, Commonwealth of Virginia

The debate over climate change is not a question of is it or is it not happening, but of countless questions within the question. "Greenhouse Governance: Addressing Climate Change in America" is an overview of the policy and politics that are debated over fiercely in today's world. Analyzing the debate from many sides as well as the place of not only America's role, but the world's as well. It also measures the effectiveness of existing policies and the policies that need to come into play to make a real difference. Scholarly and very educational, "Greenhouse Governance" is a core addition to any environmental law collection.

Format: Paperback
Even the IPCC (see below*) is now admitting their past AGW reports were unreliable so the only solution is for the Greenhouse Alarmists to put their money where their mouth is and lead the way before imposing their "Greenhouse Governance" laws on everyone else. That's what they always tell everyone else when it is pointed out that whatever we do here in the USA will have no impact on the climate while China and India are still using lots of fossil fuel so their people can live better lives.

So I suggest that all you Greenhouse AGW Alarmists be the first to go back to the primitive ways your anti-fossil fuel bans would result it and then, both sides should be happy. The Greenhouse alarmists could live guilt-free in their tiny carbon footprint no heat or air conditioning 5 X 5 huts and freeze during the winter and sweat during the summer. Plus give up their cars, computers, fridges, cellphones, websites, blogs, tweets & TV interviews.

And with the alarmists having given up all those things, us skeptics would be freed from their silly, maniacal ravings of unproven nonsense that is negated by real world data of no warming for over 15 years (which contradicts all their models). Except for the occasional `End is Near!" sign on a street corner. Overall though, a win-win.

*"By its actions, the IPCC Admits Its Past Reports Were Unreliable
Posted on July 16, 2012 by Anthony Watts

Foreword: Readers may recall that we covered the InterAcademy Council finding here on WUWT, in IAC slams IPCC process, suggests removal of top officials followed by IPCC's Pachauri should resign for "failures of leadership" Now, with virtually no notice, the IPCC has implemented a change in response to these findings, essentially admitting their past work was flawed both procedurally and factually. As a sidenote, we have Donna Laframboise to thank for much of the work in uncovering flaws in the IPCC. - Anthony"
