Hal Harvey, Robbie Orvis and Jeffrey Rissman
Designing Climate Solutions
A Policy Guide for Low-Carbon Energy
Island Press, 2018
Climate change is here – but there may be some solutions.
Energy policy consultant Hal Harvey – writing with Robbie Orvis and Jeffrey Rissman – presents a comprehensive, detailed manual for effective policy aimed at “decarbonizing the economy.” Their research, advice and spirit will appeal to those calling for climate action now. The authors detail how everything necessary to make the transition to a low-carbon economy already exists. The technologies are robust, and the costs are low. The only thing missing, they say, is the political will.
