"...A compelling and challenging book." -- Countryman (January 2007)
"The book is clearly written and well researched." -- The Observer (supp. Review) 12th November 2006
"This inspiring, visually arresting book explores the threat of climate change and the possible solutions in a clear-cut and comprehensible way." -- Sustain Magazine (November 2006)
"This is the most balanced account of the subject I have ever read, and excellent value for money, particularly given the quality of the photography." -- London Cyclist (February/March 2007)
'Authoritative, definitive and visually engaging... With a blend of beautiful images and reportage photography, and dense, well-structured information and clear writing, it combines the gloss of a coffee-table book with the journalism and depth of a broadsheet newspaper. It was written to bridge the gap between the general public and scientific literature, and it does the job admirably.' -- Birdwatch (October 2007)
Climate change, its causes and consequences have rarely seemed so tasteful as in these photographs and essays, which present the most promising solutions in full colour, too. -- The Independent, July 2007
