5 books on climate change innovation

Roger Pielke, a professor of environmental science at Colorado, posts a list of five books about climate change at the Five books blog. He also gives an interview in which he briefly discusses the books and makes some other comments about the climate change discussion in general. Australia gets a mention, although unfavourably, for introducing cane toads. The context was that one generation's solutions often end up the next generation's problems, and that because we don't know exactly what effects our actions are going to have, we should be advocating a range of initiatives rather than one big one. Thought provoking holiday reading. (The blog itself is really interesting too.)
