“High Tide” – Mark Lynas’ book about global climate change is a great achievement. In 2000 he became really concerned about the growing evidence of these changes here in the UK. So he undertakes a journey – literally to the four corners of the earth – to see for himself. He finds evidence of similar changes in China, the US, Tuvalu, Peru and Alaska and hears and records what people in these places are saying about these. Photos showing the changes are included. He also describes in some detail recent chaotic attempts at the UN climate change negotiations to respond to these concerns. Climate changes bring horrors. If you have yet to feel the sense of tragedy that comes with these, read this book and feel. We can yet act to avoid the worst. If you have to decide how societies can organise to this purpose, read its conclusions and see how we can. Lynas’ remarkable journey, personal testimony and conclusions are both heat and light. Very moving. Well done. Thank you.
