Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a major environmental challenge facing the world. We all want to reduce the risks of global warming, but how much will this cost? What will it mean on a personal, business, or community level? And what policy responses should we expect from our governments? The Cost of Climate Policy sheds light on these pressing issues. Using Canada as their focal point, the authors look specifically at the impact of emission reduction policies on energy prices, technology options, and lifestyle choices. The book concludes with concrete proposals for overcoming the constraints of environmental policy making and the high initial costs of action.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This essential book will go a long way toward enlightening the public about the cost of meeting the Kyoto Protocol and the policy measures available. It is, I believe, the first comprehensive book about climate change economics in Canada. -- Philippe Crabbe, Professor Emeritus of Environmental and Natural Resources Economics, University of Ottawa
The Cost of Climate Policy is rigorous and focused enough to be useful to someone who wants to understand this key aspect of climate change. * Literary Review of Canada *
