David D. Maenz -- Book LaunchFriday Mar 02 2018 7:30 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Travel Alcove
Winnipeg launch of The Price of Carbon.
The Price of Carbon goes beyond an assessment of the science of climate change and the impacts of excess emissions. The book details viable pathways to transition economic practices and thereby limit future surface warming as required under the Paris Agreement. The policies and climate action plans of the top emitting countries are assessed in the context of fair share contributions to the global effort. Given the immense cost of inaction, implementing effective programs to combat climate change is not only ethical but an exercise in common sense economics.
