Running a Temperature

 

 

Penny Cole, co-author of
Running a Temperature says:
"G8 summit - a forum for the prevention of action on climate change"


Running a Temperature
“A clear and alternative framework for human existence beyond capitalism together with the best action plan to combat the dire predictions of climate
change I have seen.”
Dr Boris Kelly-Gerreyn,
marine scientist

 

Running a Temperature

Running a Temperature is a punchy analysis of the underlying causes of the destruction of the planet’s eco-systems. It locates the source of climate chaos within the wasteful capitalist system of production and the intensity of the last 30 years of corporate-driven globalisation. It sets out detailed action plans to tackle the eco-crisis and is the first in a series of pocket guides scheduled for publication this year.
