            'Everything needs to change. And it has to start today' In August 2018 a fifteen-year-old Swedish girl, Greta Thunberg, decided not to go to school one day. Her actions ended up sparking a global movement for action against the climate crisis, inspiring millions of pupils to go o...n strike for our planet, forcing governments to listen, and earning her a Nobel Peace Prize nomination. This book brings you Greta in her own words. Collecting her speeches that have made history across Europe, from the UN to mass street protests, No One Is Too Small to Make A Difference is a rallying cry for why we must all wake up and fight to protect the living planet, no matter how powerless we feel. Our future depends upon it. With new speeches from Vienna, Paris, New York and Montreal.

            NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERFor the first time ever, an international coalition of leading researchers, scientists and policymakers has come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. All of the techniques described here - some well-known, some you ma...y have never heard of - are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are already enacting them. From revolutionizing how we produce and consume food to educating girls in lower-income countries, these are all solutions which, if deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, could not just slow the earth's warming, but reach drawdown: the point when greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere peak and begin todecline. So what are we waiting for?

            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.

            On May 19, 2015 the leaders of France and Germany announced that they would make all efforts to bring about a profound transformation of the world economy and society and achieve global decarbonization over the next eighty-five years. Three weeks later at Elmau Castle in Bavaria,... President Obama and the Group of Seven nations pledged to phase out the use of fossil fuels by the end of the century. They also committed to mobilizing $100bn a year by 2020 to finance low carbon investment in developing countries. Policy pledges have consequences. They imply enormous efforts to forsake the source of energy that has powered economic growth since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. This, so the thinking goes, is to be the third great transformation in human history. But unlike the first two, namely the Neolithic and Industrial Revolutions, decarbonization is like pushing water uphill: It must be consciously willed and centrally planned, requiring Western societies to transition to a post-democratic age and for the United States to leave behind its obsolete eighteenth century constitution - the single most important product of the Age of Enlightenment. An epoch-creating commitment must be put beyond the reach of the accidents and vagaries of democratic politics. Global warming is pre-eminently a political project. Claims of future catastrophe cannot be disproved, hence global warming's weakness as science (it doesn't meet the falsifiability test) but its power as an idea. It advances an agenda that pre-dates global warming but which has reached the height of its political power because of it - one of breath-taking ambition. It also signifies an inflexion point in politics. The Enlightenment was the first age that saw itself as being superior to the Greeks and conceived the idea of progress and mankind's illimitable potential and, in one form or another, the Left saw itself as agents of progress. With its embrace of environmentalism and the doctrine of limits, the Left for

            What the Eyes Don't See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            The dramatic story of the Flint water crisis, told with the gripping intrigue of a Grisham thriller (O: The Oprah Magazine)--an inspiring tale of scientific resistance by a relentless physician who stood up to power. Flint was already a troubled city in 2014 when the state of Mic...higan--in the name of austerity--shifted the source of its water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River. Soon after, citizens began complaining about the water that flowed from their taps--but officials rebuffed them, insisting that the water was fine. Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, a pediatrician at the city's public hospital, took state officials at their word and encouraged the parents and children in her care to continue drinking the water--after all, it was American tap water, blessed with the state's seal of approval. But a conversation at a cookout with an old friend, leaked documents from a rogue environmental inspector, and the activism of a concerned mother raised red flags about lead--a neurotoxin whose irreversible effects fall most heavily on children. Even as circumstantial evidence mounted and protests grew, Dr. Mona knew that the only thing that could stop the lead poisoning was undeniable proof--and that to get it, she'd have to enter the fight of her life. What the Eyes Don't See is the inspiring story of how Dr. Mona--accompanied by an idiosyncratic team of researchers, parents, friends, and community leaders--proved that Flint's kids were exposed to lead and then fought her own government and a brutal backlash to expose that truth to the world. Paced like a scientific thriller, this book shows how misguided austerity policies, the withdrawal of democratic government, and callous bureaucratic indifference placed an entire city at risk. And at the center of the story is Dr. Mona herself--an immigrant, doctor, scientist, and mother whose family's activist roots inspired her pursuit of justice. What the Eyes Don't See is a riveting, beautifully rendered account of a shameful disa

            "Our isolation has been a huge advantage. It turned New Zealand into a wild laboratory where evolution could conduct experiments that lead to weird and wonderful outcomes like the kakpo and the giant weta. More recently, scientists are discovering how little we know about the spe...cies we thought we knew so well. The authors bring you up to date with these discoveries and give you a snapshot of what is so special about New Zealand wildlife"--Publisher information.

            In the past two centuries we have experienced wave after wave of overwhelming change. Entire continents have been resettled; there are billions more of us; the jobs done by countless people would be unrecognisable to their predecessors; scientific change has transformed us all in... confusing, terrible and miraculous ways. Anatol Lieven's major new book provides the frame that has long been needed to understand how we should react to climate change. This is a vast challenge, but we have often in the past had to deal with such challenges: the industrial revolution, major wars and mass migration have seen mobilizations of human energy on the greatest scale. Just as previous generations had to face the unwanted and unpalatable, so do we. In a series of incisive, compelling interventions, Lieven shows how in this emergency our crucial building block is the nation state. The drastic action required both to change our habits and protect ourselves can be carried out not through some vague globalism but through maintaining social cohesion and through our current governmental, fiscal and military structures. This is a book which will provoke innumerable discussions.
