    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 9.99

    This study provides alternative estimates of the costs of greenhouse gas abatement through 2050 that would be necessary to limit CO2 atmospheric concentrations to approximately 450 parts per million and limiting warming to 2°C.

  • Global Warming and Agricultureby William R Cline

    Columbia University Press 2007; US$ 9.99

    How will global warming affect developing countries, which rely heavily on agriculture as a source of economic growth? William Cline asserts that developing countries have more at risk, such as their production capacity, than industrial countries as global warming worsens. Using general circulation models, Cline boldly examines 207199 to forecast... more...

  • Endangered Economiesby Geoffrey Heal

    Columbia University Press 2016; US$ 34.99

    In the decades since Geoffrey Heal began his field-defining work in environmental economics, one central question has animated his research: Can we save our environment and grow our economy?” This issue has become only more urgent in recent years with the threat of climate change, the accelerating loss of ecosystems, and the rapid industrialization... more...

  • Economics of International Environmental Agreementsby M. Özgür Kayal?ca; Selim Ça?atay; Hakan M?hç?

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    International environmental agreements provide a basis for countries to address ecological problems on a global scale. However, countries are heterogeneous with respect to their economic structures and to the problems relating to the environment that they encounter. Therefore, economic externalities and global environmental conflicts are common and... more...

  • Getting Green Doneby Auden Schendler

    PublicAffairs 2009; US$ 20.00

    “Green” has finally hit the mainstream. Soccer moms drive Priuses. And the business consultants say it’s easy and profitable. In reality, though, many green-leaning businesses, families, and governments are still fiddling while the planet burns. Why? Because implementing sustainability is brutally difficult. In this witty and contrarian book, Auden... more...

  • Routledge Handbook of Ecological Economicsby Clive L. Spash

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 53.95

    Since becoming formally established with an international academic society in the late 1980s, ecological economics has advanced understanding of the interactions between social and biophysical reality. It initially combined questioning of the basis of mainstream economics with a concern for environmental degradation and limits to growth, but has now... more...

  • Transformative Ecological Economicsby Ove Jakobsen

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    When we look at the state of the world today, what is most evident is the fact that the major problems of our time – energy, environment, economy, climate change and social justice – cannot be understood in isolation. They are interconnected problems, which means that they require corresponding systemic solutions. Today’s global economy has brought... more...

  • Positional Analysis for Sustainable Developmentby Judy Brown; Peter Soderbaum; Malgorzata Dereniowska

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution of land and water, land-use changes, lack of equality and other problems at local, national and global levels represent a challenge for economics as a social science. Mainstream neoclassical economics may be able to contribute to a more sustainable society but it has also played a dominant role in a period... more...
