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.
George Monbiot, 'one of the best-informed people on the planet about climate change' (John Burnside, Scotsman), is the author of Heat: How to Stop the Planet Burning. A celebrated eco-activist, he was awarded a United Nations Global 500 Award for outstanding environmental achievement in 1995, and is currently visiting Professor of Planning at Oxford Brookes.
