Climate change is a problem that humankind faces on a global scale, unlike any challenge or conflict before. The world's most powerful nations have the most impact on climate, but they also have the most influence when it comes to policy changes that could stop the damage. Mayer Hillman explains the real issues: what role technology can play, how individuals and communities can make changes, and why governments must act now to protect the planet for later generations. This book gives an objective, yet ardent explanation of the problem and turns the reader's focus toward a solution of this global crisis.
