About this book

A new perspective on a diabolical problem.

Climate change is one of the most polarising issues of our time, but it doesn't have to be that way. In Why We Argue about Climate Change, Eric Knight unpicks the misconceptions that keep us arguing about, and stop us seeing, the true nature of the problem – and its solutions.

Why can't we learn anything about climate change from snowstorms or scorching temperatures? How have sceptics and believers confused politics and science in their war for public opinion? Is climate change a moral challenge or a technological one? With optimism and clarity, Knight cuts through the distortions and distractions and proposes a better way forward.

Why We Argue about Climate Change is essential reading for anyone who wants to solve the puzzle of a warming planet rather than squabble about the weather. It contains expanded and updated chapters from Knight's acclaimed book Reframe, as well as much new material.
