Climate code red; the case for emergency action.

Spratt, David.

Scribe Publications, Ltd


304 pages




Spratt (an Australian businessman and co-founder of Carbon Equity, "which advocates personal carbon allowances as the most fair and equitable means of rabidly reducing carbon emissions") and Sutton (convener of the Greenleap Strategic Institute and founder of Green Innovations) review, for a general audience, the recent scientific evidence concerning climate change and affiliated issues of Arctic sea- ice melt and biodiversity. They then analyze current debates about climate policy targets, arguing that the 2 and 3 degree change targets being discussed are far too high, if we want to avoid disaster, and set out a plan for staying within one degree and make the case for its immediate implementation due to the emergency nature of the crisis. Distributed in the US by Independent Publishers Group.
