Renowned economist and environmentalist, Graciela Chichilnisky, has published a groundbreaking book Reversing Climate Change: How Carbon Removals Can Resolve Climate Change And Fix The Economy (Environmental Energy Economics). In this book, Chichilnisky argues that climate change is not just an environmental problem, but also a socioeconomic issue that can only be solved by fixing the relationship between rich and poor nations.
The book delves into the history of the Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement that aimed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to combat global warming. Chichilnisky, who played a crucial role in designing the Protocols carbon market and Clean Development Mechanism, highlights the innovative economic system that was created to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable development in developing countries. The book also addresses the continuing impasse between rich and poor nations, particularly in terms of who should bear the responsibility of reducing emissions.
Through her expertise and extensive research, Chichilnisky asserts that reversing climate change is not only possible, but also profitable. The book explores the various technologies and initiatives that can be implemented to extract CO2 from the atmosphere, utilize it, and sequester it in a commercially profitable manner. The book also emphasizes the importance of finding economic solutions that would help developing countries transition to a sustainable economy without compromising their economic growth.
Chichilniskys book has garnered praise from notable figures in economics, politics, and environmentalism. Professor Edmund Phelps, a 2006 Nobel Laureate in Economics and Director of the Center on Capitalism and Society at Columbia University, commended Chichilniskys talent and genius in addressing the dire problem of climate change. Theodore Roosevelt IV, Managing Director and Chairman of Barclays Cleantech Initiative, praised the books ability to explain complex topics with great clarity, particularly on the urgent need to extract CO2 from the atmosphere and utilize it in a commercially profitable manner.
Overall, Reversing Climate Change: How Carbon Removals Can Resolve Climate Change And Fix The Economy (Environmental Energy Economics) is a call to action for policymakers, industry leaders, and individuals to work together to combat climate change. It provides a comprehensive understanding of the intersection between economics, politics, and the environment, and offers practical solutions to reverse the impact of climate change.
The book is available for purchase on Amazon in both print and e-book formats. For more information, please visit https://amz.run/6ZVM.
