This meticulously documented call-to-action reveals extensive scientific evidence that the global warming crisis is far worse than officially indicated - and that we're almost at the point of no return. Serious climate-change impacts are already happening- large ice-sheets are disintegrating, sea-level rises will reach 5 metres this century, and we are seeing devastating species loss. It is no longer a case of how much more we can 'safely' emit, but whether we can stop emissions and produce a deliberate cooling before the Earth's climate system reaches a point beyond any hope of human restoration. These imperatives are incompatible with 'politics as usual' and 'business as usual' - we face a sustainability emergency that urgently requires a clear break from the politics of failure-inducing compromise.

Reviews

"Read "Climate Code Red". I wish I had read it sooner; it's high-caliber work . . . the best I've seen, and I agree completely." --Ken Ward, former deputy director, Greenpeace USA "A sober, balanced analysis of this challenge, unadorned by political spin, proposing a realistic framework to tackle the emergency." --Ian Dunlop, former international oil, gas, and coal industry executive "Read Climate Code Red. I wish I had read it sooner; it's high-caliber work . . . the best I've seen, and I agree completely." --Ken Ward, former deputy director, Greenpeace USA "Having been involved with global warming climate change as a researcher in environmental health for 25 years, I can say that this is without question by far the best book to date on this issue--the first book to have the integrity to say how the situation really is." --Dr. Peter Carter, founding director, Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment "A compelling case for recognising, as the UN secretary-general has said, that we face a climate emergency." --Dr. James Hansen, director, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Goddard Institute for Space Studies "Persuasive and very frightening overview of global warming" --Publishers Weekly
