2017 edition of Climate Gamble!

Exciting news!IMG_20170323_091747.jpg

We have just finished up work on our updated, improved and expanded 2017 edition of Climate Gamble! One might even call it the definitive edition!

It includes:

  • The foreword by the late Sir David MacKay (previously available only on our Paris COP21 special edition of the book, and on the book’s website). We owe David so much, both for his own excellent work that also was a big inspiration for us to write this book and for providing the foreword. Our condolences to family and friends.
  • Key takeaways for each chapter (also available on Paris COP21 edition).
  • Latest data for the graphs.
  • Some minor fixes to grammar.
  • Some extra paragraphs to better elaborate some points we make, based on reader feedback.
  • A few extra footnotes and citations on our claims.
  • A discount on the price of both the paperback and Kindle-edition. That’s right, you get more book for less money!
  • And last but not the least: a proper index to help you use the book more efficiently as a reference! (paperback only)

Our special thanks go to Bruce and Martin for their excellent feedback and support that made this edition, along with a professionally made index, possible.

Some notes: We have pulled the current paperback from Amazon (although it is still available through some sellers), and the new edition should appear in a few days, certainly by the first of April, 2017 (no, this is not an April Fools joke 😉 ). The title has 2017 edition on it, to make it stand out.

The new versions are now online and available here:

Kindle edition


We also updated the new edition on top of the old Kindle edition, so you can get the new version for free (we think, not totally sure how this works but you should be able to update your kindle-book by enabling updates on your Amazon-account).

Finally, thanks for everyone involved in helping out spread the message of evidence based climate policy!

    Unfortunately (for me) I bought the paperback only last time so no Kindle update. FYI, I had a sample of Climate Gamble in my Kindle so checked if it was the latest. At least the cover hasn’t changed (no “2017 Edition” sticker in RHS lower corner). I also checked both the .com and .ca sites and the book preview selections seem not to have changed.

    OK so I was thinking of getting the updated paperback as well as Kindle and you said

    A discount on the price of both the paperback and Kindle-edition. That’s right, you get more book for less money!

    but I don’t see such an option via Amazon. How do I do that?

  2. I have the 2015 Kindle edition via amazon.ca, but it is not updating to the new version – at least as yet.

    Further, if I go to the amazon.ca website, the only edition available now is the 2017 version, but if I try to “add” it to my collection, I am advised that I already have it (I do not. I have the 2015 version still).

    Anyway, planning to wait a while for updates…

    • Hm, have to say I’m totally unfamiliar with how the Kindle update system actually works. I’ll ask Rauli if he knows what’s the matter.

    • I’m also not that familiar with the update process as I have not done stuff like this before, but Amazon has some settings to turn on book updates for Kindle which could help. Check here (or below where I pasted the info), I hope it helps:

      Before you enable the Automatic Book Update feature, make sure Annotations Backup is turned on for your Fire tablet, Kindle E-reader, or Kindle reading app to sync your notes, highlights, bookmarks, and furthest page read. For more information, go to Back Up Your Bookmarks, Notes & Highlights.

      Note: Annotations Backup is enabled automatically and can’t be turned off on Fire tablets.

      To enable Automatic Book Updates:

      Go to Manage Your Content and Devices.
      Select Settings.
      Select Automatic Book Update to expand the section. Select On to receive automatic updates for your book, or select Off to receive an email notification when an update is available to download.


      On the discount question, I just lowered the “normal” price for both the paperback and Kindle edition by a buck or two, but it might be only for the .com store, and I’m not actually sure if they will get automatically updated to other currencies/markets as well, I need to check it out.

    I too have been unable to update my 2015 1st Edition on Kindle to the 2017 edition. Have tried all of the suggestions above … and still no go. Getting a bit frustrated, as I would like to be reading the most up-to-date version. Will contact Amazon directly on Monday but if anyone can help would be appreciated. thanks.
