This book is dense and demanding of its readers, reporting as it does on a messy world with all of its existing complexities. With the size and shape of the world economy changing dramatically in recent years, traditional patterns of trading and investing have had to rapidly evolve alongside it. There remains no single, comprehensive, reliable compendium of carbon-reduction solutions across sectors. The One Degree War Plan envisions the most powerful countries in the world forming an organization to force reductions in carbon dioxide emissions on countries throughout the world, whether they want to or not, by use of economic, diplomatic, and military pressure.
