Product description

Review

Have just reread your Salish Sea piece and I love it… it is perfect and beautifully written.

(Dr. Jane Goodall, internationally renowned primate researcher and conservationist 2017-07-07)

Carbon Play is a sweeping chronicle of travels, cultures, science and technology unlike any other book on the climate crisis. Roberts Falls’s extensive explorations have taken him to the four corners of the earth, and from every different vantage point comes a useful nugget of information on oceans, forests, climate and the technological breakthroughs that make a post-carbon world within reach.

(Elizabeth May, OC, MP for Saanich–Gulf Islands, Leader of the Green Party of Canada 2017-07-07)

Carbon Play is an important, timely and very readable contribution to the dialogue around carbon markets and climate change. The book does not profess to be a comprehensive review of the literature relating to carbon markets and that’s to its advantage. Rather, the author successfully meshes science with experiences and accounts from his own personal journey. Such an approach proves to be very successful in making this key and complex issue more accessible to a new and broader audience.

(Mark Angelo, founder of World Rivers Day 2017-07-07)

A delightful personal journey through the carbon landscape. Refreshingly easy to read though dealing with a monumental global issue.

(Dr. John Wiebe, founder and chairman of The Globe Foundation 2017-07-07)

Robert Falls has done well laying out his life as a veteran carbon explorer. I like the way he has combined science (explained in easy to understand language), autobiography (his life has not been boring), and some hopeful and practical solutions for mitigating, adapting and innovating towards a safer future. People like Robert, rather than the climate change deniers or hysterics, will help us limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

(Mike Harcourt, former mayor of Vancouver, former premier of British Columbia 2017-07-07)
