The No-Nonsense Guide to Climate Change, 3rd Edition
Written by Danny Chivers.
Published in Canada in association with New Internationalist Publications Ltd. by Between the Lines, 2011.
| Just as the need for
action on climate change becomes more urgent and overwhelming, the campaign to
deny that humans are causing it has gained more traction. This completely new
edition of The No-Nonsense Guide to Climate Change meets the skeptics
head on, offering a guide to the science, an insight into the politics of
climate justice and a clear sense of the way forward. Far from ruining our
lives, author Danny Chivers argues the new world of climate justice can be a
better place for us all.
This is an ideal offering for students, academics and anyone interested in the growing issue of society's impact on climate change and how to make climate justice a reality.
Well illustrated with charts and graphs.
Danny Chivers is a freelance carbon analyst and environmental writer. He recently created for The Guardian newspaper an online carbon calculator encapsulating all of the UK's emissionsand is working on one that will do the same for the US.
"Danny Chivers goes beyond the scary stuff and complex ideas about climate change, science, economics, power, politics, and history. In fact, he pins them down and makes them squirm, using wit, outrageous metaphors, lots of numbers, and good, plain language. In this excellent book, we have plenty of ammunition to take on the corporate lobbyists, the climate deniers, the carbon traders and the nay-sayers." Nicola Bullard, Focus on the Global South
