About this Textbook

This textbook provides a broad introduction to the relationship between climate change, economics, and climate policy for young readers and future generations. It highlights the problem of intergenerational gaps and burden sharing on climate change. Taking on major contentious issues of today, it is rich with behavioural strategies and real life experiences which are explained in an accessible and engaging way. A diverse range of topics are covered, including farm animals of Sub-Sahara, Latin American rainforests, Indian monsoon agriculture, tropical cyclones in Bangladesh, sublime grasslands, energy revolutions, hydroelectric dams of China, backstop technologies, ocean exchanges with the atmosphere, mass extinction of species, commercial fisheries, infectious diseases and pandemics, and a climate policy big deal.

Climate Change and Economics: Engaging with Future Generations with Action Plans aims to engage with young readers and offer action plans for activists. It is relevant to students interested in environmental economics and environmental science.
