About the book:
How can we save our planet and survive the 21st century? How can you argue with deniers? How can we create positive change in the midst of the climate crisis?
Professor Mark Maslin has the key facts that we need to protect our future.
Global awareness of climate change is growing rapidly. Science has proven that our planet and species are facing a massive environmental crisis. How to Save Our Planet is a call to action, guaranteed to equip everyone with the knowledge needed to make change.
Be under no illusion the challenges of the twenty-first century are immense. We need to deal with: climate change, environmental destruction, global poverty and ensure everyone's security.
We have the technology.
We have the resources.
We have the money.
We have the scientists, the entrepreneurs and the innovators.
We lack the politics and policies to make your vision of a better world happen.
So we need a plan to save our planet...
How to Save Our Planet is your handbook of how we together can save our precious planet. From the history of our planet and species, to the potential of individuals and our power to create a better future, Maslin inspires optimism in these bleak times.
We stand at the precipice. The future of our planet is in our hands.
It's time to face the facts and save our planet from, and for, ourselves.
