“I cannot think of another book that covers this ground. Mark Jaccard has done a huge service, helping to lay out the vexed ground of climate information, disinformation, and conflicting conclusions. In doing so, he helps pave the way for a meaningful conversation on effective solutions to the climate crisis. This is a must-read and must-teach book.”
Naomi Oreskes, Professor, Harvard University, and author of Why Trust Science?
“There could not be a more timely guide to taking effective climate action.”
Tim Flannery, author of The Weather Makers
“If you’re looking for a book that cuts through the contention and cant surrounding our climate crisis, this is the place to start. Renowned economist Mark Jaccard identifies and demolishes ten common myths about climate change and humanity’s transition to a low-carbon future. Then he shows what steps we should take, as individuals and societies, to address this critical problem effectively. Fearless in challenging received wisdom, and bold in his prescriptions, Jaccard speaks with a clear, brilliantly informed voice about the greatest challenge of our time.”
Thomas Homer-Dixon, Professor, University of Waterloo, and author of The Ingenuity Gap
