About this book

Describes the dangers presented by global warming, and explains the origins of the climate crisis.

If you read only one book on climate change - its past and future, politics and solutions - read this one. This is the global picture and the key to a global solution. - Tom Spencer, Professor of Global Governance, University of Surrey and President, GLOBE International 1994-99 "Man-made climate change is probably the most serious environmental threat we face. This book offers interesting and useful ideas exploring the concept of 'Contraction and Convergence' as one way to address the global climate challenge." - Michael Meacher, UK Minister for Environment "It is clear that urgent action is called for not only by government and industry but also by ourselves. If our lives are to be conducted according to principles of conscience and survival, we cannot continue to evade our responsibility on this portentous issue. I can think of no better investment of time and no more effective means of jolting people out of their complacency on the ramifications of global warming than by reading this remarkable book." - Mayer Hillman, Town & Country Planning Feb 2001
