Product description

Review

Tom Rivett-Carnac, have penned a book that shepherds climate activism from changing mental states to changing the world...the authors recommend a mindset for climate activism that rests on three attitudes: radical optimism, endless abundance and radical regeneration.
--Forbes

Inspiring... A practically minded manifesto for personal action in the face of climate change.
--Kirkus Reviews

"The Paris Agreement was a landmark for humankind. In this timely and important book, two of the principal creators of that agreement show us why and how we can now realize its promise. I hope it is widely read and acted on."
--Jane Goodall, author of In the Shadow of Man

"This is one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. The book takes a hard look at the frightening realities of climate change, but concludes that humanity can still deal with this threat. Moreover, the book presents the existential challenge of climate change as a unique opportunity to build a more just world and to make ourselves better people. Most importantly, the book adopts a very practical approach, and suggests 10 concrete actions that each of us can take in order to create a better future for all the residents of planet earth. I hope we all take this message to heart."
--Yuval Harari, bestselling author of Sapiens and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.

There could not be a more important book.
--Richard Branson

This could be the most important wake-up call of our times.
--Professor Klaus Schwab, CEO World Economic Forum

Figueres and Rivett-Carnac dare to tell us how our response can create a better, fairer world.
--Naomi Klein
