About the Author

William Sweet is a reporter and writer who currently teaches science and public policy at New York University. Educated in history and international affairs at the University of Chicago and Princeton, he covered science politics for Physics Today and IEEE Spectrum magazines.

"Sweet's history provides a balanced account of what has happened in climate negotiations. It spreads the blame evenly and ends on a hopeful tone about the expectations of the future. A good read for those who want a quick understanding."— Joyeeta Gupta, author of The History of Global Climate Governance 
*Joyeeta Gupta*

"An incisive review of climate diplomacy from Rio to Paris.  Even the most experienced observers of the process will learn something new from this comprehensive account of the key moments, issues, players, and negotiating dynamics." —Alden Meyer, Director of Strategy and Policy, Union of Concerned Scientists

“William Sweet has written an excellent and very current book, as he carries the discussion of global climate diplomacy all the way to the 2015 Paris meeting.”—Venkat Lakshmi, Cox Visiting Professor of Earth Sciences, Stanford University
*Venkat Lakshmi*

“Showing his strength as a reporter, Sweet explains very well that the policy process is not always rational or straight-forward. Outlining both the chronology of global climate policy and the cast of characters, this book shows climate diplomacy is based on logic, science, and personalities.”—Chadwick Dearing Oliver, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies
