What McIntosh does brilliantly here is offer an alternative, deeply humanist version of Green politics. --The Scotsman
One of the best books around about Climate Change. --Friends of the Earth
McIntosh makes serious philosophical thinking seem essential. --Tam Dean Burn
You go into any bookshop and you'll see shelves and shelves of titles on this subject, and it's hard to select only a couple, but I could mention Mark Lynas's Six Degrees [and] Alastair McIntosh's Hell and High Water. What makes both these books particularly worthwhile is not only that they're very scientifically rigorous but both of them ... find a kind of rage and optimism.
