Social Justice Book Club
- April 15, 2019
Join in the discussion of The Climate Casino in DC this Wed., Apr. 17th, at 6:30PM!
Join us on the third Wednesday of every month at Kramerbooks (upstairs meeting room) to discuss books related to social justice and activism. Our book selections will cover topics like race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, religion/spirituality, nationality, immigration, socioeconomic status, and current events. Our April meetup, we'll be discussing The Climate Casino by William Nordhaus.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The 2018 Nobel laureate for economics analyzes the politics and economics of the central environmental issue of today and points the way to real solutions.
Climate change is profoundly altering our world in ways that pose major risks to human societies and natural systems. We have entered the Climate Casino and are rolling the global-warming dice, warns economist William Nordhaus. But there is still time to turn around and walk back out of the casino, and in this essential book the author explains how.
Nordhaus offers a new analysis of why earlier policies, such as the Kyoto Protocol, failed to slow carbon dioxide emissions, how new approaches can succeed, and which policy tools will most effectively reduce emissions. In short, he clarifies a defining problem of our times and lays out the next critical steps for slowing the trajectory of global warming.
