Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

We still have time to change the world. From Greta Thunberg, the world's leading climate activist, comes the essential handbook for making it happen.

You might think it's an impossible task: secure a safe future for life on Earth, at a scale and speed never seen, against all the odds. There is hope - but only if we listen to the science before it's too late.

In The Climate Book, Greta Thunberg has gathered the wisdom of over one hundred experts - geophysicists, oceanographers and meteorologists; engineers, economists and mathematicians; historians, philosophers and indigenous leaders - to equip us all with the knowledge we need to combat climate disaster. Alongside them, she shares her own stories of demonstrating and uncovering greenwashing around the world, revealing how much we have been kept in the dark. This is one of our biggest challenges, she shows, but also our greatest source of hope. Once we are given the full picture, how can we not act? And if a schoolchild's strike could ignite a global protest, what could we do collectively if we tried?

We are alive at the most decisive time in the history of humanity. Together, we can do the seemingly impossible. But it has to be us, and it has to be now.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The End is Nigh

I suspect that only those who are already worried about climate change are going to read this book. If you have been reading up on the subject then some of this will be familiar, some of which will be interesting and some will give you serious pause for thought.

The insidious ways of the status quo merchants is touched upon, and some of the work already undertaken is explained.

The messages are: Use what knowledge you gain from reading about climate change to gently challenge everyone at every opportunity.

2050 is not the start line, it is not the finish line. We need to start now and we need to go fast and hard. if someone tells you it is too expensive, tell them that the Pollutocrats and Oiligarcs will be forced to pay.

I will reread this sometime soon, it is that packed with stuff I need to know.

Vital

Listened once, will listen again. The most important book I’ve encountered. We all need to know this information and act upon it. Stop flying. Stop eating meat. Stop pretending this emergency is someone else’s business. Vote accordingly. Make it a part of your work.

A great listen but not great news.

If you only listen or read one book this year make it this one.
It will educate and change your opinions at the same time.

Everyone should read this book

This is a comprehensive guide for anyone who wants to self educate about climate change and what we can do about it. Just a warning: you will not feel comfortable after reading this book (just as Greta intended)
