A timely intervention on climate change from the author of the hugely influential The Weather Makers.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Atmosphere of Hope: Solutions to the Climate Crisis, Tim Flannery, A timely intervention on climate change from the internationally acclaimed scientist and author of the hugely influential The Weather Makers. How close is the great climate crisis? Can our desire to overcome it drive humanity's next great waves of positive technological economic and social revolution? or will we be plunged into the dystopian collapses and terrors of civilisations past? This book describes in plain terms our climate predicament and brings news of exciting tools in the making that could help us avoid a climatic disaster. In December 2015 the nations of the world will gather in Paris to try to forge a climate treaty designed to give us a fighting chance to limit global warming to 2 C, widely regarded as the safe upper limit if we are to avoid catastrophe. If we succeed at Paris, forging a new era of international political cooperation in the fight against a warming planet, it is possible that the next decade will astonish us in the solutions that we discover to safeguard our planet for our grandchildren and their grandchildren. 'Think Indiana Jones crossed with Charles Darwin' Financial Times 'A wonderful writer, an original scientist, and a gifted populariser' Martin Woollacott, Guardian 'If you're not already addicted to Tim Flannery's writing, discover him now' Jared Diamond Professor Tim Flannery is a scientist, explorer and conservationist who frequently presents programmes on ABC Radio, NPR and the BBC. He is a leading writer on climate change and his previous books include Here on Earth (2010) and The Weather Makers (2005). Bookseller Inventory # B9780141981048
