My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A very compelling and non-sensational walk through the facts of detrimental human interactions with the earth, which hinges on several key concepts such as the ‘tipping point’. It is perhaps a little too detailed for my taste – I found that once the point had been made I wanted to skip on to the next chapter to find out about the next aspect of the problem. However, I did like the practical and down-to-earth suggestion of solutions and actions that could alter the course the planet seems to be set on. Rather importantly, it puts climate change in the context of a larger global set of problems that need highlighting.
This would be a good kindle read, because the paperback is large and unwieldy. You will get thumb-ache reading this edition through the night.
