See All Formats & Editions

Climate change is the greatest challenge that the world has ever faced. This book summarises the science of what is happening to the planet - both globally and using Scotland as a local case study. It moves on, controversially, to suggest that politics alone is not enough to tackle the problem. At root is our addictive consumer mentality.
