David Victor's Book 'Global Warming Gridlock' Reviewed by The Economist
Climate Change: Club (not too) Tropicana
The natural processes which dispose of carbon dioxide are, in aggregate, rather slow, which means that an increase in the atmosphere’s carbon-dioxide level will, left to itself, last a long time. David Victor, a professor at the University of California, San Diego, has a keen eye for such simple basics and the uncomfortable ways they may fit together.
