Synopsis Climate change is one of the greatest threats that humankind faces in the twenty-first century. The next hundred years could see coastlines and islands submerged, and a surge in heat waves, hurricanes, droughts, floods and therefore in pests, disease, famine and displacement. This book argues that while government and industry dither, we could all cut our personal greenhouse gas emissions by 60 per cent - the level necessary to halt the current trend according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. After summarizing today's state of affairs, scientifically and politically, climatologist Dave Reay explores the climate impact of housing, gardening, food, money, work, transport, and even death. Packed with provocative case studies, calculations and lifestyle comparisons, this entertaining and authoritative book makes the complexities of climatology understandable and challenges readers to rethink their notions of 'doing their bit'. The paperback edition features a new preface from Mark Lynas, author of High Tide: News From a Warming World.
