From Debate to Design: Issues in Clean Energy and Climate Change Law and Policy

Past predictions of the future invariably have a fanciful Tomorrowland quality tothem, and we know our grandchildren will laugh in fifty years at much of what we
write here. That’s fine.What is important is how well they will think we responded to the challenges we knew we were facing.

No one in history has ever had a stronger scientific basis for predicting the future than we have today when we consider global climate change. Despite the phony
“controversy” in some political and media circles, in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, the debate over the big questions is settled.
