About this book

Climate change is the greatest challenge to humankind today. While the coronavirus sheds a light on the vulnerability of our interconnected world, the effects of global warming will be permanent, indeed catastrophic, without a massive shift in human behaviour.

Writer, scholar and broadcaster Alastair McIntosh sums up the present knowledge and shows that conventional solutions are not enough. In rejecting the blind alleys of climate change denial, exaggeration and false optimism, he offers a scintillating discussion of ways forward. Weaving together science, politics, psychology and spirituality, Riders on the Storm examines what it takes to make us riders on the storm.

Media reviews

"It's imaginative, profound, and a reminder that the British Isles still have their own stock of indigenous wisdom to draw on [...] written with wit and self-awareness"
Earthbound Report

"This should be the end of any Scottish complacency [...] Alastair conveys a heartfelt case for doing whatever you can, without succumbing to burnout and toxic indispensability"
– David Coleman, Eco-Congregation Scotland

"McIntosh is no ideologue, he [...] manages to hold in balance an exploration of the profound depths of philosophy and spirituality, with well-argued support for consensus science"
– Kat Jones of COP26 Climate Fringe

"McIntosh sees climate change as a threat which can be met. It presents us with risk and also with opportunity. This is a very good book because it is balanced and positive. There is no despair here"
Scotsman

"It's a good moment to pause and consider the power and politics of climate change. Alastair McIntosh's book does just that. As you would expect, it's beautifully written and provides the essential introduction to the historical and scientific background, grounded in a deep understanding of climate change in place, in the context of the author's home place of the Western Isles"
Green World

"the book has made me think quite deeply about these critically important issues. What more could one want?"
