How to Cool the Planet: Geoengineering and the Audacious Quest to Fix Earth's Climate
Winner of 2011 Grantham Prize Award of Special Merit.

"This could be the most important book written about climate." —James Lovelock, author of Gaia and The Vanishing Face of Gaia
"How to Cool the Planet is thoughtful, informative, and darkly entertaining. It's the best treatment of this important (and scary) topic you can find." —Elizabeth Kolbert, author of Field Notes from a Catastrophe
