A call for urgent action in the face of climate change. Tony Juniper plays the role of a modern-day Martin Luther and presents his programme for staving off environmental, economic and social disaster. His `95 articles for comfort, security and survival' embrace actions needed to reduce carbon emissions and protect the Earth's natural ecosystems, measures required to establish sustainable farming methods and conserve agricultural biodiversity, and wider economic reforms needed to create a proper economic context for environmental sustainability and to make quality of life - rather than growth in GDP - the target outcome of economic activity.
