It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the urgency of global climate change. But when author Guy Dauncey assembles the world's best solutions in one place and a vision emerges of a sustainable energy revolution. He opens the door to a century of exciting change, characterised by renewable energy, sustainable farming, carbon-rich forestry, green cities, electric vehicles, high-speed trains, a blossoming of innovation, and a host of new 'green collar' jobs. The book draws on working solutions from around the world and lays out the best actions for students and scientists, musicians and mayors, policy-makers and presidents, showing how it is possible to reduce our carbon footprint to almost zero by 2040.
Each page describes solutions that are already being used in homes, schools, businesses, cities, and governments around the world - with full scientific references to help the reader dig deeper and push further. If you worry about climate change, whether you are an enquiring teenager, a concerned householder, farmer, forester, business leader, city mayor, or global policy-maker, this book will help you join the movement to help restore the planet's climate and build a new green economy.
