About this book

&i;Global Warning&o; is an authoritative and visually stunning book, unique in its approach. While most of the current literature on the subject is highly scientific, this book's aim is to educate the public at large. It features graphics and maps, hard-hitting text, and powerful pictures showing the plight the world is already facing. The tone is serious, but ultimately positive and outlines what we all need to do to safeguard our future. It provides an honest appraisal of a critical situation, and some practical advice about solutions - whether making small adjustments in everyday life, or raising public awareness across the globe.

This book serves as an invaluable tool to inform business leaders and the public alike of the consequences and opportunities associated with the ongoing increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide, and the repercussions of continuing "business as usual". It is clear about the problems which we face, but positive about the possibilities of averting the worst.

#133;this book should be required reading for every politician #133; It is hard #45;hitting, readable and uncompromising. Read it - and start lobbying your MP! Blackmore Vale Magazine (3rd November 2006) "The book is clearly written and well researched." The Observer (supp. Review) 12th November 2006 "This inspiring, visually arresting book explores the threat of climate change and the possible solutions in a clear #45;cut and comprehensible way." Sustain Magazine (November 2006) " #133;A compelling and challenging book." Countryman (January 2007) "This is the most balanced account of the subject I have ever read, and excellent value for money, particularly given the quality of the photography." London Cyclist (February/March 2007)
