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 book 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.
Danny Chivers is a freelance carbon analyst and environmental writer. He recently created an online carbon calculator encapsulating all of the United Kingdom's emissions for the Guardian, and is working on one that will do the same for the United States.
