PositiveThe Observer (UK)Foolproof’s key insight, based on years of painstaking scientific studies, is that misinformation acts like a virus that can infect and spread between individuals ... This book could help you to play your part in creating \'herd immunity\' against the growing scourge of fake facts and nonsense narratives.
PositiveThe Guardian (UK)Vince’s deeply humane vision of facilitated mass migration may seem unrealistic against the current backdrop of hysteria about asylum seekers in many parts of Europe and the United States...But we do now have to contemplate an extraordinary future in which the impact of global heating makes the migration of billions inevitable...Unfortunately, the same politicians who are failing to deal properly with migration are the same ones we are depending on to avoid dangerous climate breakdown.
Michael E. Mann
RaveThe Guardian (UK)The main focus of Mann’s book is a call to arms in the new war against \'inactivists\' who are using new tactics of \'deception, distraction and delay\' to prevent the phase-out of fossil fuels. Mann is a robust character ... Mann does not pull his punches, but his aim is usually strong and true. This book will no doubt prove controversial for some climate campaigners, as well as the deniers, but I hope it will be read by everybody who is engaged in making the case for action.
PositiveThe Guardian (UK)... a compelling explanation of how the world can stop global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions effectively to zero ... Gates has occasionally appeared equivocal about climate and energy policies that he thought could undermine the fight against poverty and illness. However, this book lays out forcefully his understanding that the impact of climate change poses a far bigger threat to lives and livelihoods in developing countries...The book breaks down the sources of these emissions into a few broad categories – making things, plugging in, and getting around – and Gates knows how to frame issues in terms with which everybody should be able to engage, without dumbing down the material ... I think readers will discover from his book that he is a serious and genuine force for good on climate change.
