The world’s response to climate change has been deeply flawed. The Climate Fix is where we begin to get it back on track, as science policy expert Roger Pielke, Jr. dissects the disastrous climate debate and offers a solution: expanding energy access and increasing energy security while lowering costs through technological innovation.

Review:

John Marburger, Vice President for Research, Stony Brook University and former Science Advisor to President George W. Bush
Roger Pielke, Jr. s voice in the global warming debate is one of rare common sense. While many authors link anthropogenic climate change with energy technology, Pielke, Jr. goes farther and emphasizes the role of development economics and deep seated social behaviors that cannot easily be addressed. You may not agree with his oblique, pragmatic proposal for accelerating decarbonization of society, but you will be hard-pressed to find a better analysis of the thorniest aspects of the climate challenge.
Neal Lane, Malcolm Gillis University Professor and Senior Fellow in Science and Technology at the Baker Institute for Public Policy, Rice University;former Science Advisor to President William J. Clinton
"The present climate policy stalemate cries out for a new approach in dealing with a challenge that is unprecedented in scope and complexity. This book offers scientists, policy makers and the general public a critical perspective and thoughtful suggestions for a way forward. It should be read by anyone who cares about the future of the planet and its people.
D. James Baker, William J. Clinton Foundation and former Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Pielke s thoughtful analysis of how climate science has interacted with policy - often not productively - provides new and engaging insights. Moreover, his conclusion about the importance of decarbonization and disaggregating climate policy gives the climate debate a new dimension. By weaving his personal story into the development of these issues, he presents a compelling narrative that deserves a wide readership.
Kerry Emanuel, Professor of Atmospheric Science, MIT
Roger Pielke, Jr., cuts through passions and politics to propose a clear and sober way forward in addressing one of the critical issues of our time.
"The Economist"
A bright and provocative bookthe arguments for an energy-innovation approach to climate change seem currently to be gaining ground For those who want to understand them, this [book] is a very good place to start.
Slate.com
This year s must-read global warming book.
"Reason"
Pielke s proposals look increasingly likely to garner some bipartisan support on Capitol Hill. "The Climate Fix" is a clear-eyed analysis of how climate science became politicized and of the magnitude of the technological and economic issues that addressing the uncertainties of any future warming will entail.
Bjorn Lomborg
This year s must-read global-warming book [is] "The Climate Fix." "
