Summary
We insure our lives against an uncertain future--why not our planet? In Climate Shock, Gernot Wagner and Martin Weitzman explain in lively, clear terms why we need to consider climate change in the same way we think about insurance--as a risk management problem, only on a global scale. They show that the longer we wait to act, the more likely it is that an extreme event will happen. Zeroing in on the unknown extreme risks, the authors look at how the same economic forces that make sensible climate policies difficult to enact also make radical would-be fixes like geoengineering all the more probable. With a new preface addressing recent developments in climate, Wagner and Weitzman demonstrate that climate change can and should be dealt with--and what could happen if we don't do so--tackling the defining environmental and public policy issue of our time
