AGW in the Realm of the Social Sciences

"Most people think that global warming is a question for the natural sciences, that it primarily involves heat waves, melting ice sheets, droughts, and storms. True, scientific controversies have been central to public debates about global warming. However, in reality the ulimate source -- and the solutions -- lie in the realm of social sciences."

-- William Nordhaus, The Climate Casino: Risk, Uncertainty, and Economics for a Warming World
