            His research was urgent fifty years ago. Now, it's critical. In the early 1970s, budding Kiwi scientist Dave Lowe was posted at an atmospheric monitoring station on the wind-blasted southern coast of New Zealand's North Island. On a shoestring salary he measured carbon in the ...atmosphere, collecting vital data towards what became one of the most important discoveries in modern science. What followed was a lifetime's career marked by hope and despair. As realisation dawned of what his measurements meant for the future of the planet, Dave travelled the world to understand more about atmospheric gases, along the way programming some of the earliest computers, designing cutting-edge equipment and conducting experiments both dangerous and mind-numbingly dull. From the sandy beaches of California to the stark winters of West Germany, the mesas of the Rocky Mountains and an Atlantic voyage across the equator, Dave has faced down climate deniers, foot-dragging bureaucracy and widespread complacency to open people's eyes to the effects of increasing fossil fuel emissions on our atmosphere.

            An entertaining celebration of sustainable fashion, buying well and finding your style in the twenty-first century. 'The point of this book is to explore my ideas for sartorial satisfaction, to tell the stories associated with my love of clothes and fashion, and to share the mess...age of accidental sustainability.' When Peta Mathias dug through the clothes she had stored away for twenty years in her shed, she realised it was full of valuable, beautiful items that were crying out to be worn again- 'Fashion is mysterious, irresistible and alluring . . . they are not just frocks - they are beauty, art, history, emotion, memory, identity and, above all, joy.' From this arose a new appreciation of buying well but cannily, so your clothes will not bankrupt you nor go out of fashion. Reviving her neglected wardrobe, Peta revelled in mixing fabrics, colours and patterns, considering how to make an impact and how that dull pair of shoes can be transformed into something just a little bit fabulous.

            Advisors who guided David Attenborough's Our Planet now reveal the full scale of the climate emergency we face, along with the positive message that if we act, we can stabilize Earth's life support system. To accompany the Netflix documentary Breaking Boundaries: The science behi...nd Our Planet , this high-impact book, written by leading climate change experts, explains the greatest crisis humanity has ever faced. The story is accompanied by unique visualizations of Earth produced by Globaia, the world's leading visualizers of human impact. The authors explain that in 2009, scientists identified nine planetary boundaries that keep Earth stable, ranging from biodiversity to ozone. Beyond these boundaries lurk tipping points. In order to stop short of these tipping points, the 2020s must see the fastest economic transition in history. This book demonstrates how societies are reaching positive tipping points that make this transition possible: groups such as Extinction Rebellion and the schoolchildren led by Greta Thunberg demand political action; countries are committing to eliminating greenhouse gas emissions; and one tipping point has even already passed - the price of clean energy has dropped below that of fossil fuels. At the brink of a critical moment in history, this essential book presents a vision of Planetary Stewardship based on a new understanding of our rainforests, ice sheets, oceans, atmosphere, and rich diversity of life.
