Recommends it for: Someone who wants to know the late '80s through Kyoto history of the global warming debate
I was initially a little disappointed when I looked at the publication date (months after I bought it, of course) and realized that this book was written in 1999, and thus probably wouldn't do much to bring me further up to date on the topics of peak oil or climate change.
