More hurricanes, glacier melt - instances of extreme weather are becoming more frequent and there is a greater awareness of the disproportionate effect climate change will have on poorer countries in the South. Each new scientific report on climate change makes increasingly alarming predictions about global warming. The threat is impossible to ignore. Or is it? Most governments have responded slowly, if at all, pointing to an attitude of denial and a reluctance to instigate the major changes needed. This guide looks at the latest findings, explores the options and explains why carbon emissions trading and nuclear power are not the answer. It calls for measures to clean up our act, cut energy use, and improve energy efficiency.
