HEAT: HOW TO STOP THE PLANET BURNING George Monbiot
In this deeply intelligent book, George Monbiot asks whether we can still save the planet from the devastating results of climate change, without losing our comfort and security. He exposes the cowardice of our politicians and sweeps away their excuse for not doing anything: that it would be too painful and expensive to sustain life on earth. Taking a close look at what works and what doesn?t, he shows exactly how we can achieve a 90 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030, without bring civilization to an end. Combining his unique knowledge of campaigning and environmental science, he reveals how we can transform our homes, our power and our transport systems. But he also shows that this can only happen with a massive plan of action, which no government has yet been prepared to take. This book should change the world.
