‘Overheated: The Human Cost of Climate Change’ by Andrew Guzman - The Washington Post
With lines like “The changing climate will create a world of people dying of thirst and hunger,” “Overheated” can be a hard book to read. But its strength lies in its clear-eyed assessment of the costs involved in various policy responses to the issue. “There should be no mistaking the fact that this will involve some economic sacrifice,” he writes. “Our lives are easier because energy is plentiful and inexpensive, but we can no longer ignore the impact of our energy use on the climate.” Unless we impose a higher price on carbon, he warns, “we will trigger human tragedy on a scale the world has never seen.”Kent Brockman (Character) - Quotes
