Tim Flannery ¹ 4 review

A decade ago Tim Flannery’s #1 international bestseller The Weather Makers was one of the first books to break the topic of climate change out into the general conversation Today Earth’s climate system is fast approaching a crisis Political leadership has not kept up and public engagement with the issue of climate change has declined Opinion is divided between technological optimists and pessimists who feel that catastrophe is inevitable. If you ve been keeping up with developments in climate science and have a good handle on denier tactics there won t be much in the first two thirds of this book that s new to you If you haven t this is a solid primer The crux of the book is the last third which summarises efforts to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere looking at their readiness and cost and assessing how much of a part they might play in reducing the impact of climate change There are lots of numbers as you d expect prices tonnes of C tonnes of CO2 tonnes of feedstock and so on Most of the mature technologies seem not that hopeful and the most hopeful solutions seem not that mature But I reckon Flannery s right that we need to start putting some serious effort into researching and developing them because emissions reduction and adaptation to climate change effects are not going to be enough to save our arses There s also a uick rundown of what you as an individual can do to support emissions reduction this isn t your usual travel less eat local food screed and has some useful suggestions for how you can engender policy changeOverall it s not a ripper read or anything and would probably have been better published as a short book or a uarterly Essay but there s some important stuff in hereI should check if there s an associated website it would be good to know the info will keep getting updated as it s bound to be superseded uickly
