How to deal with climate change

Controlling Climate Change, by Dr Bert Metz and published by Cambridge University Press, provides an unbiased and comprehensive discussion of what can be done to solve the problem of man-made climate change.

It gives an in-depth overview of issues, useful for both students and professionals, while using a minimum of technical jargon, and is accessible to non-specialised readers as well as those involved in climate change policy.

This accompanying website provides free access to chapters, the book as a whole, and related materials. Additional comments, publications, blogs on the topic, and links to climate policy developments will help readers understand the debate.
