Gaia Warriors

authors: Nicola Davies; James Lovelock

Inspired by the work of outstanding scientist and thinker James Lovelock and written by acclaimed author Nicola Davies, here is a book that takes a clear look at how and why Earth’s climate is changing and the ways we can deal with it. Its style is simple and its explanations are compelling, illuminating not only hard facts but also the opinions and potential solutions of scientists all over the world. But there are other voices too, those of people young and old -- lawyers, food producers, fashion designers, scientists, rock stars, architects, conservationists, kids, campaigners, and more -- who are trying to change the way they (and we) live on the planet. At once comprehensive and accessible, this galvanizing call to arms includes web links and resources that make it easy to join the cause.
Back matter includes an afterword, resources for further information, a glossary, and an index.

A book on global warming like no other, merging key concepts with firsthand accounts from people of all ages who have found ways to help.
