Author: HANSEN, JAMES.
Title: Storms of My Grandchildren: The Truth About the Coming Climate Catastrophe and Our Last Chance to Save Humanity.
Description: London Bloomsbury, 2009. 1st UK ed. Hardback dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket). 304 pp. America's leading climate scientist speaks out for the first time with the full truth about global warming. The planet is hurtling even more rapidly than previously acknowledged to a climatic point of no return. Although the threat of human-caused climate change is now widely recognized, politicians have failed to connect policy with the science, responding instead with ineffectual remedies dictated by special interests. Hansen shows why cap-and-trade won't work; why we must phase out all coal, and why 350 ppm of carbon dioxide is a goal we must achieve if our children and grandchildren are to avoid global meltdown and the storms of the book's title. This urgent manifesto bucks conventional wisdom (including the Kyoto Protocol) and is sure to stir controversy. ISBN: 9781408807446.
