Worthwhile - but last chapter has a serious problem., 29 Nov 2013
A readable and convincing analysis of a huge subject which is only now being discussed, for obvious reasons. It has well-argued conclusions and recommendations.
The difficulty I have is the author's complete acceptance of the "problem" of climate change. Any sceptics reading this will know that the wheels are coming of that particular hobbyhorse quite rapidly. His complete acceptance of this extremely dodgy area of science is worrying. As an analogy in the debate over multiculturalism it does have some merit, though perhaps not in the way the author suggests. In recent years both the measures to "combat climate change" and to impose multiculturalism on reluctant populations can both be seen as the actions of elites acting in their own self-interest.
