This review is from: The God Species: How the Planet Can Survive the Age of Humans (Paperback)
As a person who knows next to nothing about the facts behind climate change or enviromentalism this book was a real eye-opener - explaining the key issues in detail whilst being easy to understand and utterly fascinating.
The writer also appears to be the best kind of revolutionary environmentalism in accepting that people and not going to sacrifice their luxuries, their modern pleasures or their wallets for the sake of higher moral reasons (or at least not enough to make a difference to climate change). Instead he puts forward realistic plans on how climate change can be tackled without damaging the economy, our lifestyle or the principles of capitalism (which aren't going anywhere, recession or no).
You may not be agree with everything in this book but if you're interested in the subject this is a great read.
