Description

This study integrates scientific findings about the Global Warming Potential (GWP) - for example, the roles of pollution, population growth, agricultural development and sustainable resources - with advances in economic theory and methods, so as to explain how and why climate and economy are complementary at the local, national and global levels. The primary purpose of this work is to provide analytical bases for the creation of pragmatic, ecology-environment-economy policies, rather than to overwhelm the reader with technical processing that does not offer any comprehensive examination of the effects of the economy upon the environment, and vice versa. Modelling and data processing are treated as secondary requirements and follow, rather than precede, the framework developed in this book.

Back cover copy

THE ECONOMICS OF GLOBAL CLIMATIC CHANGEThis timely work provides the analytical tools for developing practical, environmentally-friendly economic policies. It integrates the latest scientific findings about the Global Warming Potential with advances in economic theory and methods to show how and why climate and the economy are interrelated at the local, national, and global levels. Using nontechnical language and a minimum of mathematics, Rao explains the impact of pollution, population growth, agricultural development, and other forces on the environment and offers a framework for improvement.
