            The England Coast Path: 1,000 Mini Adventures Around the World's Longest Coastal Path
             

            The England Coast Path: 1,000 Mini Adventures Around the World's Longest Coastal Path (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            The opening of the England Coast Path means that anyone will be able to walk and wild camp along the entire 3,000-mile length of the English coast. As well as being a remarkable national achievement in itself, this new national trail is a hugely exciting prospect for all walkers,... campers, fans of the coast and the outdoors. In 2018 Stephen Neale became one of the first people to walk and wild camp along the whole of the path, and in doing so has written a fantastically detailed and rich guidebook covering the route itself, along with everything from the best places to swim, hunt for fossils and eat seafood to hidden away beaches and canoeing spots. The bulk of the book is divided up into the 16 coastal counties and features 1,000 places to see, explore, camp and adventure around the coast. Each place has an OS map reference, basic directions to it from the path and a short description. Walkers can either visit specific places or link highlights together, walking between them along the path. The England Coast Path is a true embodiment of our national character - at a time when all things English are so often seen in a negative light, this is a wonderful success story. Environmentalists, volunteers, social campaigners, land owners and politicians have all come together to create a `ninth wonder of the world'. This path represents what makes England so great: a little bit mad, a little bit proud; but mostly a celebration of this nation's most precious asset: the wild coast.

            What We Need to Do Now: For a Zero Carbon Future

            What We Need To Do Now sets out a comprehensive programme of action to counter the threats to our environment. It is a manifesto for groups around the world that are seeking urgent action on climate breakdown and other threats. The book emphasises the importance, and relative sim...plicity, of decarbonising our energy supply but also stresses that this is a small part of the switch to a sustainable planet. Among many other urgent transitions, we also need to focus on changing the agricultural system and reducing our hugely wasteful use of resources. As importantly, we need to make sure that the transition to a zero carbon world benefits the less well-off and reinvigorates the smaller cities and towns around the world that have been left behind. This is a practical, original and inspiring book: a new green deal for an inhabitable earth.

            Massive environmental problems threaten our planet and evoke within us a need to act - a need to do something, no matter how small, to slow the damage. But what kind of action? Businesses, governments, and environmental groups tell us that buying environmentally friendly products... while living more lightly on the planet is a winning strategy. If enough of us make these changes to our lifestyles, governments and corporations will follow suit. Environmental solutions will emerge and the planet will prosper. Michael Maniates believes that individuals can and must stop environmental destruction. But not by living green. The mantra of "buy green, live lean, save the planet" is a con: it fosters pernicious assumptions about social change, separates individuals from their real power in the world, and fuels damaging consumption. It's high time to find more rewarding and promising avenues for saving the planet. This book shows us how.
