William Marsden is an investigative journalist who loves facing current issues and informing the public of the severity of certain situations, and climate change is one of these things that many of us don’t want to think about much less do anything about. We keep thinking what can I possibly do to make things better?
According to Marsden it all starts with the failure of our world leaders to face climate change and acknowledge it as a problem that we need to really pay attention to. There are stories that are starting to appear on the evening news that point to the fact that climate change is real, and that it is wrecking havoc with many places both in the United States and Canada as well as all over the world.
There are more floods, violent storms, hurricanes and tornadoes. There are places that never experienced these weather conditions that are experiencing them now and constantly. So, the proof that there is climate change and that it is real is all around us. All we have to do is to be honest about it.
What is even worse is that some of this climate change is irreversible. This keeps some scientists awake at night. However, any environmental realities and action plans are paralyzed by political short-sightedness, economic self-interest and ever nation’s desperate scramble for its share of the remaining atmospheric space.
This book takes the reader inside all of these talks and debates. It is a wealth of information and it is a must read for all Canadians!
