Stop Global Warming: Change the World
Global warming threatens the planet, but people already have the technology to solve the problem. The real problem is that those in power and the corporations can't or won't act, so it falls to the only force that can challenge them: the six billion people of the world. Most books on climate change are devoted to showing the scale of the threat we face, but offer few solutions. Jonathan Neale's approach outlines the case for radical political change that alone can stop global warming, and asks: How do people organise to achieve this result?
