This book is a call for action to face up to climate change. McManners argues that that there is a way out of the world's climate emergency which needs much greater realism than the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The changing climate is leading to record temperatures and increasing frequency of storms, but this is just the commencement of dangerous consequences to come. It has become abundantly clear that a bold approach is needed to pull back from catastrophe. People like Greta Thunberg should be admired for speaking up, and we should understand why organisations such as Extinction Rebellion exist. However, protest without a clear agenda for change has little lasting impact. The case for action is overwhelming, argued eloquently by David Attenborough and other environmentalists. The world's response must be real action, not empty promises.
This book provides the manifesto that protesters and environmentalists need. It states clearly the need to close down fossil fuel without delay. Individuals making change within their own lives will make little difference. The solution is to demand even bigger changes which apply to all.
Read this book. Support the manifesto. Face Up to Climate Change NOW.
