What We Need to Do Now: For a Zero Carbon Future

by Chris Goodall - £9.99  Profile Books Ltd (2020)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781788164719 | ISBN 10: 1788164717

A manifesto for groups around the world that are seeking urgent action on climate breakdown and other threats.
 
The UK has declared a 'climate emergency' and pledged to become carbon neutral by 2050. So how do we get there? Drawing on actions, policies and technologies already emerging around the world, Chris Goodall sets out the ways to achieve this. His proposals include:
 
-Building a huge over-capacity of wind and solar energy, storing the excess as hydrogen.
-Using hydrogen to fuel our trains, shipping, boilers and heavy industry, while electrifying buses, trucks and cars.
-Farming - and eating - differently, encouraging plant-based alternatives to meat
-paying farmers to plant and maintain woodlands.
-Making fashion sustainable and aviation pay its way, funding synthetic fuels and genuine offsets.
-Using technical solutions to capture CO2 from the air, and biochar to lock carbon in the soil.
 
What We Need To Do Now is an urgent, practical and inspiring book that signals a green new deal for Britain.
