Michael E. Mann - The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back our Planet

At its best when taking on climate deniers and explaining the science, this attempt to be optimistic in the face of the climate threat by a renowned climate scientist fails to get to the heart of the problem. Mann's solutions focus on shifting public opinion to pressure fossil fuel corporations and economic pressure through carbon pricing. There's no real sense of a system that destroys the environment through a relentless drive for profit. A weak, liberal, book that doesn't do justice to the problem.

I've been asked to review this book for another website. I'll link to that review here when it is published.
