Description

"Meticulously researched, eloquent, and inspiring, this new book powerfully demonstrates the scale of the threat which climate change poses to the world's poor, and issues a clear and compelling call for climate justice." Caroline Lucas, Green Party MEP for South East England "A persuasive and much-needed book on what must be the defining political issue of this century -- climate justice." Mark Lynas, journalist and author of Rising Tide: News From A Warming World The story of climate change is the story of all life on Earth. This book shows how the environmental challenges we face are leading to big changes in our lives. It shows how people are already making adaptations and adjusting to cope with climate change. Most importantly it suggests that, if we work together, we can still avert a climate crisis. This is a clear and simple account of action that needs to be taken in both rich and poor countries. Packed with information, it's an ideal resource for anyone who wants an introduction to the story of climate change, and the choices we face to ensure the health of ourselves and the health of the planet.show more
