|Summary:||It is a bright master plan and a must-read for policy makers." Laurence Tubiana, former French climate ambassador for COP 21 "Hal Harvey has earned an international reputation as adviser to governments, businesses, and utilities, showing which levers can most effectively deal with climate change. The innovative economic and regulatory techniques found here can solve tough energy problems. Harvey provides a gift—a handbook to his techniques as understandable as a storybook." Rush D. Holt, CEO, American Association for the Advancement of Science|
He knows what he is writing about and his book offers focused, tested strategies for policy makers who are serious about making a difference." John Kerry, former US Secretary of State and former US Senator "Hal Harvey's response to increasing temperatures, rising sea levels, and extreme weather is this timely, thoughtful roadmap to a sustainable future for our planet and its inhabitants. He combines pragmatic optimism and common sense to produce science-based policy options that can enable us to save our planet while strengthening the world's economies." Tom Carper, US Senator "The cognitive dissonance between the real impacts of climate change and responses to it is dangerous in the extreme. Hal Harvey's new book shows us, with crystal-clear analysis, how to do more and faster.
"A compact but detailed how-to guide for developing energy policies that have real impact." Vox "A superb guide to policies to reduce carbon emissions in the power sector...The book, which provides a highly structured exploration of the sources of power sector emissions and policies to reduce them, is systematic, thorough, and insightful." PV Magazine "In the real world of environmental protection, decision makers need detailed information on which policies will have the biggest impact, and how to design those policies so they really deliver. Designing Climate Solutions is an outstanding resource." Lisa P. Jackson, Administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency, 2009-2013 "We are dangerously behind in the existential race to deal with climate change. The cost of inaction far exceeds the cost of action. Hal Harvey has been on the front lines of this fight for years.
