Climate chaos and pollution, deforestation and consumerism: the crisis facing human civilization is clear enough. But the response of politicians to it has been cowardly and inadequate, while environmental activists have tended to favour single-issue campaigns rather than electoral politics. The No-Nonsense Guide to Green Politics measures the rising tide of eco-activism and awareness and explains why it heralds a new political era worldwide. One of the few books to analyse the huge impact that climate change will have on politics in future. Written by Derek Walls, a former speaker of the Green Party, in a clear, accessible style. Includes black and white maps, charts and graphs to illustrate key points. Fully referenced, and includes useful bibliography and contacts sections.
