Climate change is the greatest challenge that the world has ever faced. In this groundbreaking new book, Alastair McIntosh summarises the science of what is happening to the planet - both globally and using Scotland as a local case study.

He moves on, controversially, to suggest that politics alone is not enough to tackle the scale and depth of the problem. At root is our addictive consumer mentality. Wants have replaced needs and consumption drives our very identity.

In a fascinating journey through early texts that speak to climate change - including the ancient Sumerian Epic of 'Gilgamesh', Plato's myth of 'Atlantis', and Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'- McIntosh reveals the psycho-history of modern consumerism.He shows how we have fallen prey to a numbing culture of violence and the motivational manipulation of marketing.

Recommended.
