The Climate Fix Back Cover Blurbs

Basic Books has posted online the back cover blurbs from The Climate Fix.  Here they are:
“Roger Pielke, Jr.’s voice in the global warming debate is one of rare common sense. While many authors link anthropogenic climate change with energy technology, Pielke, Jr. goes farther and emphasizes the role of development economics and deep seated social behaviors that cannot easily be addressed...you will be hard-pressed to find a better analysis of the thorniest aspects of the climate challenge.”—John Marburger, Vice President for Research, Stony Brook University and former Science Advisor to President George W. Bush

“The present climate policy stalemate cries out for a new approach in dealing with a challenge that is unprecedented in scope and complexity. This book offers scientists, policy makers and the general public a critical perspective and thoughtful suggestions for a way forward. It should be read by anyone who cares about the future of the planet and its people.” Neal Lane, Malcolm Gillis University Professor and Senior Fellow in Science and Technology at the Baker Institute for Public Policy, Rice University
“Pielke’s thoughtful analysis of how climate science has interacted with policy - often not productively - provides new and engaging insights. Moreover, his conclusion about the importance of decarbonization and disaggregating climate policy gives the climate debate a new dimension. By weaving his personal story into the development of these issues, he presents a compelling narrative that deserves a wide readership.”—D. James Baker, William J. Clinton Foundation and former Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

“Roger Pielke, Jr., cuts through passions and politics to propose a clear and sober way forward in addressing one of the critical issues of our time.”—Kerry Emanuel, Professor of Atmospheric Science, MIT
