Book Description

1 Sep 2008


The Eighties - what a decade. Yuppies got mobile phones, there were important changes to the Swedish Act of Succession and we discovered who shot J.R. (it was his scheming sister-in-law and mistress, Kristin). Oh, and for the first time in history, our environmental footprint exceeded the earth’s biocapacity.

What this meant was humanity was drawing an environmental debt, consuming resources faster then Mother Earth could replace them. And this debt is growing. Let’s be 100% clear about this, because this is really important - we are living beyond our means. With the US as the benchmark for global consumption, we would require 25 Earths to satisfy our wants. As it is, we already need one and a half planets for one planet’s consumption. We consume more than we can sustainably afford and pollute faster than it can be cleared up.

It’s time for a new way of thinking. It’s time for Acme Climate Action.

This kit is to get you thinking - and doing something - about the climate crisis.

It’s designed to be taken apart, poked, cut, stuck, stretched and, well, destroyed. Yes, well destroyed. There are posters, postcards, stickers, letters and notebooks. When correctly used, you should have nothing left.

With Acme Climate Action you can save the world and get hand exercises at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last... an eco book with a sense of humour 5 Sep 2008
Love this book. Bought it on the off chance that it would get our office a bit more motivated about green issues. We spent the afternoon drooling over the design, fighting about who would get the posters and putting stickers in inappropriate places. Idle pleasures with an eco conscience. Result.

This is a great book. It looks wonderful and is fun to use but it's also incredibly informative without being patronising, and full of ideas for things we can all do to make a difference. I'm buying loads to give as gifts this year, as well as buying two for myself - one to keep whole to enjoy and refer to, and one to use as it's meant - what a good idea to make the whole book into something that can be entirely recycled! Well done Provokateur - keep the cool green ideas coming!

I love all of the ACME books, and this one doesn't disappoint.
Humorous, informative, creative and entertaining. Great quality feel with top notch design elements.
Just buy it - cheap as chips for what you're getting.
