'This no-nonsense guide is the perfect solution. Order a bunch of them, send them to your nearest and dearest and let Danny's book do all the hard-work for you. It's a wonderful combination of science, truths and creative thinking; hopes and fears of the future. Best of all, it informs us in a humanistic manner of what we can do, collectively and as individuals, to make change happen.'
'A concise and clever book. For those that think they know about Climate Change it's a short and timely reminder of the science behind it (complete with compelling information to counter climate deniers). For people that aren't up with the science, or are sceptical of the whole 'Global Warming' lark, it's an accessible and convincing introduction to the subject. Highly recommended.'

Want to get up-to-date on climate change? The No-Nonsense Guide to Climate Change is an accessible and friendly pocket-sized overview of this complex mega-subject, combining all the basics with the latest facts and analysis. Written by Danny Chivers - a climate change researcher, activist, educator and performance poet - the book aims to counter the recent wave of climate change nay-saying by explaining the science in a clear, step-by-step and jargon-free fashion, peppered with humour, quirky analogies and unusual examples.
It also aims to show how a zero-carbon world is both possible and desirable, and the kind of steps we’d need to take to get there. Taking a firm stance in favour of global justice, it covers climate targets, solutions, history, politics, and what action we can usefully take, all in one handy little guidebook. Ideal for beginners and experienced campaigners alike.
About the Author: Danny Chivers is a freelance carbon analyst and environmental writer. He recently created for The Guardian newspaper an online carbon calculator encapsulating all of the UK’s emissions – and is working on one that will do the same for the US. He is also a prominent performance poet.
