“Rich Rosenzweig has written three very useful books in one: a concise history of international climate governance and carbon markets, an eyewitness account from a major player who helped make that history, and a sharp analysis of what didn’t work and what maybe can work going forward. Rosenzweig cuts through the abstractions to the practical reality of climate protection: moving the planet’s energy system to zero carbon sources in the next several decades. His recommendations, calling for a pragmatic portfolio of policies that will actually work rather than an elegant monolithic, top-down policy or market structure, will serve the debate well. Even long time veterans of the climate issue will learn a lot, and have their thinking challenged.” (Armond Cohen, Executive Director, Clean Air Task Force)
“Mr. Rosenzweig has done an erudite and masterful job of capturing the complexities and challenges of the policy responses of governments around the world as they grappled with the most important, daunting and vexing environmental issue ever to face the people of Earth. He delivers a comprehensive summary of 25+ years of policy deliberations and approaches tried both domestically and internationally, with a candid assessment of the successes and failures. These highly valuable historical insights inform his sage policy recommendations. Global policymakers at all levels of government would be well served to study the author’s conclusions and follow his guidance.” (Dale E. Heydlauff, Vice President-Corporate Communications, American Electric Power)
