Men’s Health’s Reviews Overheated

Men’s Health, May 24, 2013, by Bob Drury



“It’s good for people to do all the good environmental things. Drive less. Heat and cool their houses less. Fly less. I don’t want to diminish that, but they are not the ultimate answer. We need policy. And this sounds a little over-the-top romantic, but look at all the things Americans have done in the past that are admirable and heroic, that were sacrifices today for payoffs tomorrow. The Greatest Generation? Regarding climate change, we’re being asked to do something far less than that for a payoff that is at least as big. Surely we can answer the bell.”

Washington Post Reviews Andrew Guzman’s Book Overheated

“The wisest choice Guzman has made in outlining this scenario concerns the warming estimate on which he bases his projections: an increase of 2 degrees Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, above pre-industrial levels by 2100. This is the threshold political leaders have pledged to keep within to have a chance of averting dangerous consequences, but every indication is that the world will warm much more by the end of the century. By adopting what Guzman himself calls “a conservative prediction,” he bolsters his case for action. After all, if things fall apart under a 2-degree scenario, how much worse would it be if the rise reached 4 degrees, which is what might very well happen given the current rate of global carbon emissions?”

“Andrew Guzman’s blog post on Sandy  is informative. Among other consequences of the storm, wastewater treatment systems failed, releasing tonnes of sewage. The damage will cost billions to repair. Not the most high-profile of issues, but indicative of the myriad ways we are vulnerable to impacts, often with hidden costs.”

Andrew Guzman discusses Hurricane Sandy and Why We Underestimate the Costs of Climate Change

“Once we start to think about how climate change can undermine the basic structures we have built and upon which we rely, it becomes clear that virtually everything is at risk.”

Andrew Guzman Says International Law Programs Still Evolving

The Huffington Post, February 8, 2011 by John Haffner


“I don’t think that law schools, collectively, have figured out what it is they should be doing. A lot of schools are trying different things with the word ‘international’ in them.”

Andrew Guzman Estimates the True Costs of Climate Change

The Huffington Post, December 15, 2009 by Andrew Guzman

“Before we decide how much we’re willing to spend to mitigate climate change, we need to know what it will cost if we don’t. The conventional view in policy circles is that climate change will cost the United States somewhere between 0 and 2 percent of GDP by the year 2100. But a more thorough accounting points to a much heavier price.”

Andrew Guzman and Kenneth Bamberger Want Companies Liable for Unsafe Imports

San Francisco Chronicle, February 25, 2009 by Kenneth A. Bamberger and Andrew Guzman


“Where imports are likely to pose a threat to consumers, higher legal penalties should be imposed on U.S. companies trading in these unsafe products, making these firms liable for the true costs of their foreign activity.”

Andrew Guzman and Kenneth Bamberger Think U.S. Firms Should be Liable for Unsafe Imports

San Jose Mercury News, January 26, 2009 by Ken Bamberger and Andrew Guzman


“If their bottom line is affected, companies will check to see how their toys, medicines, pet food and other products are made and whether they are safe. American importers and sellers have no trouble fine-tuning their products to the precise demands of the American consumer. There is no reason to think they are any less able to make sure that the products won’t injure us or our children.”

Andrew Guzman Explains Benefits and Drawbacks of Free Trade

KGO-TV, Oct. 29, 2008 by David Louie

“For the waitress who’s not in a trading industry and who has a low income, that person is much better off with free trade because they get cheaper textiles, cheaper cars, cheaper food, and for people in industries that are trading, admittedly those people can suffer some dislocation if trade is open, but the flip side is true if trade is closed. If trade is closed, then other people lose their jobs.”
