Reviews

"The Burning Question is a fascinating examination of the forces that have led to our current predicament and it presents an important framework for a sustainable future. I recommend it highly."--Al Gore, 45th Vice-President of the United States "There have been many books on this issue but The Burning Question lives up to the urgency of its title. Clearly set out, steely with the numbers but fair and humane in its assessments of human strengths and weaknesses, it is a book to reignite the debate."-- Peter Forbes, The Guardian "sensible and well documented...recommended to those new to this topic."-Publishers Weekly "The issues explored in The Burning Question are hugely important. Policymakers and the public urgently need to be engaging in this kind of big-picture conversation" --Jim Hansen, Director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies "This is a book that needed to be written it asks the right question then seeks the most effective ways of answering it. An essential contribution to our thinking about climate change." --George Monbiot, Writer and campaigner "Mike Berners-Lee and Duncan Clark have lit a beacon for the wayward, listing ships of climate thinking ... and their strategy for action is nuanced and evidence-based" --Nature "Probably the best synthesis of the key arguments over climate change that I've read. ... Clark and Berners-Lee have managed to bring a refreshing new clarity to the debate." --Joss Garman, Greenpeace
