'The most intelligent treatment of the politics and economics of climate change I have ever read. Brilliant, clear and unanswerable’ - George Monbiot

'Elegantly simple and eminently workable, this is a proposal that could change the world. Kyoto2 should be read by anyone with an interest in climate change policy' - Mark Lynas

'A fresh, accessible, cogent and bold case for a radical departure from most established thinking. Very seldom is an argument made with such gusto, sharpness and wisdom. Whether you agree with Oliver Tickell or not, your understanding of and thinking about this vital global challenge will be greatly enhanced by reading this book' - Caspar Henderson

'Kyoto2 is bang on the nail. Exactly the kind of fresh, radical thinking that is now so urgently required' - Jonathon Porritt

'Kyoto2 hits the nail on the head: we need to crank down the global supply of fossil fuels. This is much simpler and more effective than trying to cap emissions, an almost hopeless task. Climate change is a global problem that must be treated globally. Kyoto2 shows how this can be done.' - Peter Barnes, Entrepreneur and writer

'Informative and illuminating, this is a radical assessment of where we're going on climate change (ever-further down the destructive slope) and where we could be headed with prompt and vigorous action (into a far healthier and still sustainable future).' - Norman Myers, Professor and Visiting Fellow at Green College, Oxford University, and at the Said Business School

'This is a fantastic book--timely, important, and far-reaching, a key reference for anyone seeking to understand the complexities of dangerous climate change and current efforts to reduce it. Critical in tone and thought, Kyoto2 sharply examines one of the most urgent issues of our time.' - William F. Laurance, Senior Scientist, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama; and former president, Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation

'Analytical and prophetic, Kyoto2 proposes a green economics of climate change that could just save our planet.' Miriam Kennet, Director, Green Economics Institute.

'This is the book we need, and not a moment too soon. It takes seriously the latest science, and sets out to achieve what is necessary, not what's easy.'
Bill McKibben, environmentalist, writer and founder of 350.org
