"It is vital that people understand the scale and urgency of the action that is required to reduce the huge risks of climate change. This action will arise, in large measure, from the pressures that people place on decision-makers. And action is also required by consumers, investors, workers and citizens. The public needs informed analysis and serious comment from the media, rather than the gladiatorial rough-housing that has sometimes characterized coverage of climate change. This book provides a timely analysis of and insight on these issues. Communication and reflection are vital on this fundamental issue and the basic science requires that we move quickly. Journalism and the media more generally will be vital." (Lord Stern of Brentford, Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment)
