Publisher's Summary

David Hone, Chief Climate Change advisor to Shell, takes on the subject of climate change in a frank and open discussion built on more than 30 years in the energy industry and the last dozen in the field of climate change. The conclusion, "It's going to be much tougher than we think to solve this problem, but solve it we must."

Climate change could be categorized as the most pervasive yet least understood issue of our generation. Some deny it, others are incensed by it, but most are left in the middle wondering what to think and, more importantly, do about it. While they wait and wonder, carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere increase, which almost certainly points to additional future warming of the climate system.

Governments have been trying to come to terms with this for over twenty years and have little to show for their efforts; emissions just continue to rise, yet at some point during this century they have to return to zero - from 40 billion tons per annum today. A few argue that this will be easy; just get rid of fossil fuels and the problem is solved. But we need the energy these fuels provide for everything we do, use, make, and buy. Nothing currently comes even close to offering a universal replacement.

The solutions lie within our grasp; it's just a question of whether we want to use them. But from Canberra to Capetown and Washington to Warsaw, controversy abounds.

All proceeds from this audiobook will be donated to the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) and 2041, two NGOs that the author has worked with directly over many years.
