Activists, academics, scientists, commentators and journalists rally for action on the crisis of our times.

The debate is over. The science is in. Climate change is real, and it’s happening far more rapidly than previously expected. So, the question becomes, what on Earth can we do about it? As it turns out, plenty. And, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, to keep global warming to 1.50C above pre-industrial levels ‘requires rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society’. Including your breakfast. Here are some books that speak to the severity of our current climate crisis, and offer insights on how we can play our parts in addressing it.
