bookshelves: current-events, environmentalism
Recommended for: People curious or skeptical about cap-and-trade
Read in January, 2010

The introduction was fabulous and sold me on the merits of carbon cap-and-trade.

But the rest was a shotgun approach to future technology developments and dubious predictions by start-ups trying to attract capital. With a heavy dose of "the market will solve everything" because our capitalist system is the best way to harness human ingenuity and blah blah blah.

Granted, the argument is much improved by the imperative to factor in true life-cycle costs of burning fossil fuels. But it is still a 1-D theme.
