  • A program for building a global clean energy economy while expanding job opportunities and economic well being.In order to control climate change, the International Panel on Climate Change IPCC estimates that greenhouse gas emissions will need to fall by about forty percent by 2030.Achieving the target goals will be highly challenging Yet in Greening the Global Economy,A program for building a global clean energy economy while expanding job opportunities and economic well being.In order to control climate change, the International Panel on Climate Change IPCC estimates that greenhouse gas emissions will need to fall by about forty percent by 2030.Achieving the target goals will be highly challenging Yet in Greening the Global Economy, economist Robert Pollin shows that they are attainable through steady, large scale investments totaling about 1.5 percent of global GDP on an annual basis in both energy efficiency and clean renewable energy sources Not only that Pollin argues that with the right investments, these efforts will expand employment and drive economic growth.Drawing on years of research, Pollin explores all aspects of the problem how much energy will be needed in a range of industrialized and developing economies what efficiency targets should be and what kinds of industrial policy will maximize investment and support private and public partnerships in green growth so that a clean energy transformation can unfold without broad subsidies.All too frequently, inaction on climate change is blamed on its potential harm to the economy Pollin shows greening the economy is not only possible but necessary global economic growth depends on it.

      A short, clearly written argument for the many benefits of aggressive investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy. Pollin argues that not only will the transition be a lot better for job growth than is commonly understood, but it will benefit numerous countries with different economic foundations.

      What a relief to read a well-grounded book arguing that we can still do something about climate change! According to the author this is completely feasible from a technological and economic standpoint. It’s just the politics that gets in the way. (Bet you didn’t see that one coming.)Robert Pollin is a distinguished economist at the University of Massachusetts. His book, “Greening the Global Economy,” is published by MIT Press. So when he says that doing what it takes to stop climate chan [...]

      Surprisingly technical and numbers based, based on my first impression considering its size and length. It makes a strong case but in a fairly dry way.
