Climate Solutions

A Citizen's Guide

Climate Solutions explains in clear and simple language what different proposed climate policies will do—and what they won't do. It tells you who's behind the policies, who'd pay for them, and who'd profit. It strips away the spin and tells you the key facts you need to know. In a very real sense, Climate Solutions ushers in the next stage of the global-warming debate. In the first stage, we discussed the problem. In the next stage, we must choose solutions.
