The Director of ‘Friends of the Earth’ sets out his manifesto for what we need to do if we are to save this planet for future generations and stressing the fact that these changes need to start being made now. Fascinating reading that is passionately written and should be paid heed to.
The human world sits on the brink of potentially catastrophic environmental change. If we do not drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and start that process now, it is projected that in the second half of the 20th century the cost of climate damage could amount to a fifth of global GDP.
The latest science confirms that there is now only a decade left for action.
How Many Lightbulbs Does it Take to Change a Planet is a clarion call for urgent action in the face of environmental change that threatens to devastate human societies. In it Tony Juniper, director of Friends of the Earth for England and Wales, presents his programme for staving off environmental, economic and social disaster.
Passionately written and cogently argued, How Many Lightbulbs Does it Take to Change a Planet is essential reading for anyone who cares about the world our children will inherit.
