Chasing Rainbows looks at the commonly held beliefs about what we should do to avoid, curtail or adapt to global warming and compares them to what we should actually be doing. This is not an argument about the science: Worstall leaves that entirely to others to debate. Rather, he asks what guides and indications we can draw from the economics already embedded in such pronouncements as the IPCC reports and the Stern Review. The answers will shock some: globalisation is part of the cure for climate change. Recycling of some things certainly saves resources but of domestic waste actually squanders them. Creating 'green jobs' is not a benefit but a cost of our actions.

1.0 out of 5 stars PLEASE!!! July 26 2014
By michael mielke - Published on
I have to say that the first review completely overstates the value of Tim's god-awful book. To be only very disappointed and to find it not worth time and money gives the book too much positive credit. It really is like the cap-and-trade legislation that went down and other cruel books that talk about markets and adaptation. These are foolish concepts that will never work, like Tim's book. It is worse than nothing, it harms physical reality with its hair brained ideas related to market reality, or advertised reality.
1.0 out of 5 stars very disappointed Jan. 3 2014

Not convincing, not well researched or engaging. Their are far better books out there to read about how the environmental movement is becoming far more dogmatic and less based on research. This book is not worth your time or money
