Good general introduction from the perspective of consumers - what we can all do to help conserve resources and combat environmental problems.
From the publisher's announcement:
'For thirty years Mayer Hillman has been busily turning conventional political thinking on its head ... he has come up with solutions that are hard to dismiss'
Climate change is the single biggest problem that humankind has ever had to face. Yet politicians cannot agree a framework for tackling it effectively and meanwhile we continue with lifestyles that are way beyond the planet's limits. Here Mayer Hillman explains the real issues we should focus on: what the government is doing, what role technology can play and, above all, why we must act now to protect our planet for later generations. Challenging, stimulating and practical, How We Can Save the Planet is the essential guide to help you understand how we can safeguard our future.
# Shows how you and your community can make changes, and why government must take the lead.
# Introduces a radical rationing scheme to reduce our individual carbon outputs to a fair and ecologically safe level.
# Gives helpful short- and long-term guidelines for the home, travel and leisure to enable us to live within this ration.
