A thorough a wide ranging review of climate change and sustainable development, and a superb reference manual. Prof Grubb's framework of the three domains is thought provoking and helpful. Let's hope politicians take Billy Pizer's endorsement to heart: "this is an important read for anyone looking for a sensible and comprehensive way forward".

This is a tremendous book. It explains clearly where we are with energy and climate change, the limitations of a purely neoclassical approach to the economics of energy, and what can be done to overcome them. The 'three domains' of economic decision making and development (Satisficing, Optimising and Transforming), provide a very useful framework for understanding the issues.

The overall tone is positive, and there are many fascinating insights. For example, the difficulties of carbon pricing and emissions trading systems are explained, but where there have been achievements they are highlighted.

Big beast but worth the effort. A closely detailed and well structured approach to a hugely complex issue.
