Praise

‘Why Are We Waiting?’ does not disappoint. It’s an extraordinary book in so many ways – even though I have to own up to not being able to follow much of the more technical economic stuff, and was even a bit bowled over by his mind-bending excursion into the field of moral philosophy! But that’s Nick Stern for you. He’s always argued that most economists engaged in the climate debate just don’t get far enough outside their own (often rather narrow) comfort zones; they’re only too happy ‘dodging the ethics’, as he puts it.—Jonathon Porritt Blog

Nicholas Stern’s masterpiece discusses climate change and its potential solutions from the perspective of an economist. What impressed me the most about it, however, was that Stern did not shy away from venturing into the field of moral philosophy. He discusses the moral and ethical dimension of the climate debate—and ethics is a subject that I have discussed in several speeches over the years.

Andreas Dombret, Bloomberg
