Two different approaches to the ethical and political questions surrounding climate change.

In her book What Climate Justice Means and Why We Should Care, philosopher Elizabeth Cripps approaches climate justice not just as an abstract idea but as something that should motivate us all. Using clear reasoning and poignant examples, starting from irrefutable science and uncontroversial moral rules, she explores our obligations to each other and to the non-human world, unravels the legacy of colonialism and entrenched racism, asks who should pay the bill for climate action? and argues powerfully that climate justice goes beyond political polarization. Climate activism is a moral duty, not a political choice.

In his book Hot Air: The Inside Story of the Battle Against Climate Change Denial, for the first time, climate scientist Peter Stott reveals the bitter fight to get international recognition for what, among scientists, has been known for decades: human activity causes climate change. Across continents and against the efforts of sceptical governments, prominent climate change deniers and shadowy lobbyists, his book is the urgent story of how the science was developed, how it has been repeatedly sabotaged and why humanity hasn't a second to spare in the fight to halt climate change.
