Climate Poker is a Potpurri of some work I did in Bioastronomy (Search for life in the universe) and Climate Policy research. The connection? Well - the survival factor is the main factor determining the number of civilizations existing in the universe, and we are not a good example... Anyway - the book contains some musings about planetary climate evolution, internal and external parameters influencing the long-term evolution of atmospheres, and it also gets a bit onto the activist side. I also show that one of the world's leading examples of regional climate policies was little more than political marketing. I hate it. Lies are the foundation of the marketing civilization we have become. The problem is that people have a tendency to believe what they want to believe - and they especially want to believe their own lies.
