5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Miss L Greene on 31 Jan 2006
Format: Paperback
This is an exceptionally engaging and human book for a very weighty set of issues. I bought this book for several friends at xmas who I have trouble engaging in what is the biggest human rights and inequality issue of our time - climate change. This book really ties in the human impact story to the climate change agenda. It's amazing how many people haven't made this link. Andrew Simms writes in an exceptionally engaging and imaginative way. It took me a couple of chapters to warm up, but by the end I was totally hooked - reading for pleasure, not education and writing my list of who else to buy it for.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Alison TOP 500 REVIEWER on 2 Dec 2009
Format: Paperback
I picked this book up after reading Andrew Simms book, Tescopoly. His writing had impressed me and this book is the same. Just as Tescopology this is an engaging and compelling writing on a complex topic with many thorny issues.

It's rather thought provoking and even if you have doubts about some of the ecological arguments surrounding global warming, you will be interested to read about the attitudes of governments to less arguable issues of pollution and usage of finite resources.

Simms doesn't just go on and on about climate change, although that is a central theme, he also examines the economical impact of global warming (regardless of its cause). There's much about living within our means (as a planet and as individuals) and a really interesting chapter on second world war economies in the face of reduced resources.

An excellent economical account of our current environmental status and how we need to change in the face of our changing climate. Recommended.

Format: Paperback
Most books about global warming - important though the issue is - tend to be a little on the worthy side, and deeply depressing. This book is neither. There are worrying facts, but the verve with which Andrew Simms writes, the stories he includes, as well as the photographs and bizarre illustrations, make this one of the key texts for the debate, and the most readable. It not only deserves to be read - not least for the important introduction to a whole new idea (eco-debt) - but it actually will be.
