" 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
