Designing Climate Solutions Greatest amount of greenhouse gas emissions and give readers the tools to select and design efficient policies for each of these sectors In Part II they break down each type of policy from renewable portfolio standards to carbon pricing offering key design principles and case studies where each policy has been implemented successfully We don’t need to wait for new technologies or strategies to create a low carbon future and we can’t afford to Designing Climate Solutions gives professionals the tools they need to select design and implement the policies that can put us on the path to a livable climate future A Potential New Climate Policy Bible Reviewing ‘Designing Climate Solutions A Policy Guide for Low Carbon Energy’When the IPCC Climate Change Report came out in October of last year I was hopeful that the clear and direct tone of the warning and the necessity of its recommendations would finally resonate with the general public especially in the United States Only a month later when climateenergyenvironment issues weren't the top mentioned concerns in any single US market and voters sent mixed messages across the country with their ballots many in the energy world saw how awareness and recognition of the need for action still hadn't struck the necessary chord Whether that's attributed to insufficient media coverage paralysis caused by the enormity of the task at hand or something else is up for debate but what's not up for debate is the need for something to cut through the disconnect and clearly convey the solutions that are already achievable today The technology we need to drastically cut emissions already exists what we're lacking is the necessary policy solutionsRight on cue Hal Harvey with co authors Robbie Orvis and Jeffrey Rissman of Energy Innovation released the book Designing Climate Solutions A Policy Guide for Low Carbon Energy in November This treatise on how to move public policy so that the potential devastation of climate change can be prevented is detailed and reads as a textbook on the topic while that may not make it the book you want to give your friends who don't already care and think a lot about these issues I believe it will serve as a great Climate Policy Bible that should sit on the bookshelves of all energy wonksTo see the rest of my review see the post on my blog

Cribes how to design these policies well Designing Climate Solutions A Policy Guide for Low Carbon Energy is the first such guide bringing together the latest research and analysis around low carbon energy solutions Written by Hal Harvey CEO of the policy firm Energy Innovation with Robbie Orvis and Jeffrey Rissman of Energy Innovation Designing Climate Solutions is an accessible resource on lowering carbon emissions for policymakers activists philanthropists and others in the climate and energy community In Part I the authors deliver a roadmap for understanding which countries sectors and sources produce the Overall a very insightful and practical book on proven policies to meet the Paris Agreement two degree celsius goal Written for policy wonks the book provides examples of existing programsregulations in different GHG emitting sectors that can be used by various policy setting government entities The main weakness of the book outside of being repetitive and some what dry is the assumption that these policies can be easily adopted; it does not take into effect the political economic and resource restraints that often hamper the implementation of many of these policies Nevertheless the book is an excellent compendium of programs for climate mitigation
