About the book

This website serves as an accompanying resource to the book published by Island Press in November 2009 titled Climate Solutions Consensus edited by David Blockstein and Leo Wiegman. The book presents the consensus of the more than 1,300 scientists, educators, students, environmentalists, policymakers, business people and other citizens who attended the National Council for Science and the Environment's Eighth National Conference on Science, Policy and the Environment in January 2008 with a theme Climate Change: Science and Solutions that much of what we need to do now is known, many actions are technically feasible, although massive investment is needed to develop the next set of solutions, and that these actions are economically and socially beneficial and necessary.

This site accompanies the text with video and power point presentations from the conference, the list of speakers, sponsors, and other participants, and considerable background material. It also contains a set of educational resources for those teaching about climate science and solutions prepared by NCSE’s Council of Environmental Deans and Directors (CEDD). This website will continually be updated. We invite readers of the book to contribute their own ideas and report on their own actions.
