On my wish list good reads: Heat of George Monbiot. He argues in this book that there’s still time to save the world.
The Guardian writes:”Monbiot comes up with some ingenious solutions to cut carbon while preserving our lifestyles. There is, however, one carbon extravagance he insists the planet can no longer afford: air travel. A return flight to New York creates more greenhouse gases per passenger than the total amount Monbiot says we should be allowed to use as individuals in a year. “The growth in aviation and the need to address climate change cannot be reconciled.” A 90% cut in carbon emissions means that there can be no more shopping trips to New York or parties in Ibiza, “unless you believe that these activities are worth the sacrifice of the biosphere and the lives of the poor”.
