About this book

In this explosive collection George Monbiot sets out exactly what he believes can and must be done and establishes how it can be achieved. "Bring on the Apocalypse" scrutinises the promises of supermarkets to become carbon neutral and asks why, if they can make such promises, can't governments? It attacks the self-serving interests of those who dismiss climate change and discusses the consequences of eco-living, from keeping an allotment to surviving without a car.

George Monbiot's accumulated wisdom unpicks the confusing mass of contradictions surrounding environmental debate to demonstrate that there is a way to save our future, if only we would listen.

'A dazzling command of science and a relentless faith in people... I never miss reading him.' Naomi Klein 'Monbiot is one of the best-informed people on the planet about climate change.' John Burnside, Scotsman 'The man has done his homework, and his capacity for processing and making sense of science compels awe.' Tom Fort, Spectator 'Anyone who thinks they know what should be done about global warming must read.' John Gray, New Statesman
