I won this book in a goodreads drawing.Less a book than a pamphlet, this book tells about the ways and means of carbon pricing as an instrument to combat climate change The author thinks it s the crusade of our time.It therefore seemed odd to me that the author demonstrates how it does not work in his own book He is sure that with a few improvements it will work, but doesn t seem sure how.The book is an informative look at policy options, and some of the effects of those policies He thinks technology is both the problem, and the solution, which makes for an uneasy narrative, especially when the author isn t sure exactly what technology will solve the problem I was reminded of Gulliver s Travels and the scientists who wanted to get sunshine from cucumbers and such.
