In Climate Shock Gernot Wagner and Martin Weitzman explore in lively, clear terms the likely repercussions of a hotter planet, drawing on and expanding from work previously unavailable to general audiences. They show that the longer we wait to act, the more likely it is that an extreme event will happen. A city might go underwater.
What we know about climate change is alarming enough. What we don't know about the extreme risks could be far more dangerous. Wagner and Weitzman help listeners understand that we need to think about climate change in the same way that we think about insurance - as a risk-management problem, only here on a global scale.
Demonstrating that climate change can and should be dealt with - and what could happen if we don't do so - Climate Shock tackles the defining environmental and public policy issue of our time.

Stringent, credible and worrying
As an economist by training, businessman by profession and environmentalist by conscience; I must say this is one of the best, most detailed and most sound arguments for carbon taxation. The book takes the economics of uncertainty into account when explaining how the world ought to react to the unknowns of climate change. Strongly recommended.
