About this book

This book challenges the climate change sceptics. 'What's the point in me doing anything about climate change when China is opening two new power stations a week?' All of us are guilty of making excuses not to change our lifestyles especially when it comes to global warming and climate change.

"What about China?" aims to show that all the excuses we give to avoid reducing our carbon footprint and our personal impact on the environment are exactly that, excuses. This book illustrates through clear explanation, facts and figures, that any changes we make now will have an effect, both directly and indirectly on climate change. Various topics covered in this book include: Climate; recycling; energy; and, travel and food. It provides clear, concise and entertaining answers to 70 questions by a panel of experts from The Soil Association, Waste Watch and the Centre for Alternative Technology.
