A world-leading expert exposes how fossil-fuel companies have waged a thirty-year campaign to blame individuals for climate change while taking no responsibility themselves, and offers guidance on what we must do now to reverse global warming.
Recycle. Fly less. Eat less meat. These are some of the ways that we've been told we can save the planet. But are individuals really to blame for the climate crisis?
Seventy-one per cent of global emissions come from the same 100 companies. Companies that have spent the last 30 years using clever marketing techniques to place the responsibility for reversing climate change on individuals, whose actions -- however well meaning -- simply won't be enough alone. The result has been disastrous for our planet.
In The New Climate War, renowned scientist Michael E. Mann argues that all is not lost. He draws the battle lines between the people and the polluters -- fossil-fuel companies, right-wing plutocrats, and petro-states -- and outlines a plan for forcing our governments and corporations to wake up and make real change.
