This important book examines one of the most crucial issues in the modern world: climate change. Providing a refreshing interdisciplinary perspective, which pulls together strands of natural science, economics, and ethics, Greenhouse Economics poses some serious questions and offers intelligent answers.

Themes covered include:
A· How do we deal with uncertainty and ignorance?
A· What role do science and economics play in policy formation?
A· To what extent should individuals take responsibility for the society in which they and their descendants live?

By examining issues such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports, recent economic analysis, and the ethical concerns in economics, Greenhouse Economics manages to provide an up-to-date and informative analysis of this important problem facing society.

This book will be of strong interest to students and academics in the field of ecological and environmental economics, while also being essential reading for all those for whom climate change is an important professional or personal concern. The interdisciplinary analysis will appeal to academics in a range of subjects such as geography, ethics and ecological studies as well of being of great interest to policy-makers.
