Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bert Bolin's book on climate change is an essential text for anyone looking at the role of science in the climate change negotiations. He was the first chair of the IPCC, but wrote the book after leaving the post and shortly before his death. As a result, while drawing on his personal experiences, he writes from the perspective of an "inside-outsider". His analysis shows how thorough the IPCC process was in achieving consensus and puts down, with effectiveness, the "deniers" who question the agreed science. Additionally, his narrative shows how international agreements are reached: by consensus, slowly, but thoroughly, something that only insiders are really able to observe.
