The No-Nonsense Guide to Climate Change is an accessible and friendly pocket-sized overview of this complex mega-subject, combining all the basics with the latest facts and analysis.

It also aims to show how a zero-carbon world is both possible and desirable, and the kind of steps wed need to take to get there. Taking a firm stance in favour of global justice, it covers climate targets, solutions, history, politics, and what action we can usefully take, all in one handy little guidebook.
