"A model of clarity, comprehensiveness and, above all, sanity. It truly does find a middle ground in the climate debate - and in the process, probably counts as the single most important book on the subject."We all know that global warming is a problem, but the blizzard of information and misinformation on the subject makes it hard to know what to do. The Hot Topic is the first book to set out the problems and the solutions in a straightforward way – no hidden agenda, no breast-beating, no hair shirts.
"The Hot Topic has an authoritative clarity that scythes through the junk science and brushes aside the brigades of doom-mongers and overly earnest environmentalists... The search for a climate-change equivalent of Silent Spring is over."
"Crucially, this book is not authorised by eco-warriors, but by pragmatists, who care about understanding the science, examining the problems, and looking for technologgical and political solutions."
