"Monbiot calls the politicians' bluff" - "Sunday Telegraph". Everyone's talking about climate change now. But do they really know what they're talking about? Luckily someone does. Here George Monbiot - riler of governments, scourge of big business and arch-enemy of climate change deniers everywhere - tells it like it really is. For the first time Heat cuts through the waffle, excuses, fudged figures and PR greenwashing to show us who's been talking hot air about going green, and what the real solutions are (they don't involve wind turbines on No.10 or planting a tree every time we fly). Instead, George takes us through what works, what doesn't and what the numbers actually mean to show how we can save the planet by putting pressure on the rich and powerful people who can really make a difference. "Easily the best of the latest climate change books" - Observer. "Scourge of the lying industry ...Monbiot is one of the best-informed people on the planet about climate change" - Scotsman. "A book that anyone who thinks they know what should be done about global warming must read" - John Gray. "George Monbiot writes about social change with eyes wide open".I never miss reading him" - Naomi Klein.
