Climate change is the greatest challenge to humankind today. Whilst COVID-19 sheds a light on the vulnerability of our world, global warming will be permanent, indeed catastrophic, without a massive shift in human behaviour. Writer, activist and broadcaster Alastair McIntosh sums up the current knowledge. He shows that conventional solutions are not enough and offers a powerful vision for humanity that weaves together science, politics, psychology and spirituality.
