About this book

Don't just sit there, do something. But what? How Can I Stop Global Warming? gives you all the facts and figures you need to know to understand what is causing global warming, why we must act and what we must do. The essential guide to what global warming is, what causes it, and what you can do to stop it - either as an individual or as part of a bigger group. Written by experts at Friends of the Earth, it explains the facts in three easy-to-use sections. What is it and what causes it? A complete guide to the current explanations for global warming - from sun spots to flatulent cows - with a guide to what is myth and what is truth, plus a clear idea of what will happen if we do nothing at all, or not even enough. What can we do together? Many of the answers to global warming are national or international issues. Understanding which ones work, and which don't, is vital in understanding whom to vote for or support. What can I do? There are also loads of things that the individual can do to help stop global warming - in the home, at work, on holiday - but some are very effective and some are useless.These and other questions are addressed so that we all can - collectively and individually - help stop global warming.
