Climate Change Policy: A Survey.

ISBN: 1559638818
Island Press Washington, DC 2002 
  Paperback thick octavo, very good condition, minor edgewear corners. 563 pp. The primary obstacles to addressing climate change are not scientific but political and economic. Ignorance and confusion surrounds this issue - including lack of understanding of climate science, its implications for the environment and society, and the range of policy options available - and this contributes to the political morass over dealing with climate change. These comprehensive essays consider: climate science in historical perspective; analysis of uncertainties in climate science and policy; the economics of climate policy; north-south and intergenerational equity issues; the role of business and industry in climate solutions; and policy mechanisms including joint implementation, emissions trading, and the so-called clean development mechanism.

Climate Code Red: The Case for Emergency Action.
Spratt, David; Sutton, Philip.
ISBN: 9781921372209
Scribe Publications Melbourne, Carlton North 2008 
  Paperback small octavo, very good condition, minor edgewear. 304 pp. two Australian climate-policy and sustainability advocates document the extensive scientific evidence that the global warming crisis is worse than officially indicated - and that we're almost at the point of no return. It is no longer a case of how much more we can 'safely' emit, but whether we can stop emissions and produce a deliberate cooling before the Earth's climate system reaches a point beyond any hope of human restoration. These imperatives are incompatible with 'politics as usual' and 'business as usual' - we face a sustainability emergency that urgently requires a clear break from the politics of failure-inducing compromise.
