We know that climate change is happening. We know that it could, if the worst predictions come true, destroy the conditions which make human life possible. Only one question is now worth asking: can it be stopped?
In HEAT George Monbiot shows that it can. For the first time, he demonstrates that we can achieve the necessary cut - a 90 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 - without bringing civilization to an end.
Combining his unique knowledge of campaigning and environmental science, he shows how we can transform our homes, our power and our transport systems. But he also shows that this can happen only with a massive programme of action which no government has yet been prepared to take. HEAT also contains a breathtaking new exposure of the corporations trying to stop us from taking action.
Inspiring, original, blazing with energy, this book should change the world.
