Paying for Tomorrow: Maintaining Our Quality of Life Michael Curley

Written for a general audience, Paying for Tomorrow: Maintaining Our Quality of Life explores and explains the various financial strategies that could be used to preserve the quality of our lives. Yes, we have to pay to reduce greenhouse gases, but we also have to pay for climate resilience, adaptation, and mitigation. Yes, we have to have safe drinking water plants and wastewater treatment plants, but we also need power to run them. Yes, we want to conserve energy and increase our use of renewables, but we also need to protect jobs. This book is about what we are going to have to pay for in order to maintain our quality of life in the foreseeable future. And it is about the strategies we must employ to make sure that we use the most cost-effective and least expensive strategies to pay for them.
