This review is from: The Carbon Crunch: How We're Getting Climate Change Wrong - and How to Fix it (Paperback)
Superb critique of the green movement and how obstructive they've been to quicker fixes. How governments have bowed to 'public' pressure, otherwise known as the green fanatics. However, we need fanatics to balance inefficient and unchecked burning of fossil fuels. Nevertheless, the solution does not lie in one technology. Although Helm appears to put entire faith in natural gas, Gas cannot be part of the equation without carbon capture and storage, no fossil burning system can. It's a well written book, and extremely thought provoking. Green economics is far more complex, and current thinking relies on too many flimsy assumptions. But, this book actually questions those assumptions, and the circus they call COP. One of the better books out there, but not without major weaknesses. NOT for climate sceptics either.
