An incisive analysis of serious deficiences in the responses by governments to unsettled science about causes and effects of climate change, by Professor David Henderson, of the University of Westminister, and former Head of the Department of Economics and Statistics of OECD. In a paper to be published in World Economics (Vol 10, No 1) he begins: "In this paper I question the characteristic treatment of climate change issues by fellow-economists, as seen in recent articles, books and reports. The focus of the paper, however, is not on economics. My main theme is what I see as the uncritical and over-presumptive way in which these various sources have dealt with the scientific aspects of the subject."
