Book review in Nature Online, 9 April 2009.

Author(s): Ackerman, F.
Year: 2009

Research Area(s): Climate Economics

Description: A review of Nicholas Stern's book Blueprint for a Safer Planet (The Bodley Head: 2009), which offers a sweeping proposal for a global climate deal and argues that saying, "We cannot afford it" is not very different from "we are not sufficiently bothered to deal seriously with climate change." Ackerman notes the urgency of Stern's tone and praises the book for proposing what could be an affordable, effective global deal.
