This book packs a lot into 186 pages: part manifesto, part call to arms, part essential handbook to navigating the climate crisis.
Co-authored by two key architects of the 2015 UN Paris Agreement, it imagines what will happen if we meet the terms of that agreement by 2050, and what will happen if we don’t. There’s an urgency about it, but also an unshakable optimism underpinning the practical, manageable advice the authors give.
It reminds us that hope is a radical political act, and one we particularly need in times of crisis and uncertainty.
