ISBN 978 0 00 724812 4. This Book, although looking like one of those Collins Pocket Reference Guides, is actually classified under “Politics/Current Affairs” and is written by Mark Lynas. I actually read the entire thing before I realised who wrote it. Mark is famous for his books “High Tide” and “Six Degrees” where he plots the damage that Global Warming can, and will, do to mankind. Mark liberally borrows from so many of the other books you will see reviewed on these pages such as “How we can save the Planet” by Mayer Hillman and “Heat” by George Monbiot. Lynas also gets several opportunities to discretely plug his own books on the matter. This is a pocket guide. No doubt about it. It is aimed at the UK market and provides a lot of links to web sites as well as Tables of numbers to use on ready-reckoners so everyone can very roughly calculate their Carbon Footprint. The advice contained on reducing this Carbon output is very similar to Chris Goodall’s book “How to live a Low Carbon Life” reviewed elsewhere on this web site although it was not credited by the author of this little work. There are lots of good numbers to get tucked into here. The book steers clear of controversy and sticks mostly to the main facts in a very light-hearted, bright and breezy tone that some may find annoying. However, it is a great little read and every home in the UK should have a copy posted through it’s letter box by the Government.
