Instances of extreme weather are becoming more frequent, and there is a greater awareness of the disproportionate effect climate change has on poorer communities and countries in the South.
So climate chaos is impossible to ignore . . . or is it? Most governments have responded slowly, if at all. An attitude of denial means a reluctance to make the radi-cal changes needed.
This No-Nonsense Guide to Climate Change looks at the latest findings, explores the options, and explains why carbon emissions trading and nuclear power are not the answer. It calls for measures to clean up our act, cut energy use, and improve energy efficiency.
