Product description


'Dave Reay has done a good job of answering the question: What can I do?. You will learn everything you need to know about cutting your contribution to emissions of greenhouse gases, and some good ideas for turning climate saving into a communal activity.' - Times Higher Educational Supplement

'...[an] excellent primer on how to cut your contribution to climate change. The average person in the rich world, he says, can cut their greenhouse gas emissions during their lifetime by a thousand tonnes. With politicians unwilling to act to save the planet, it seems that direct action is the only way.' - Fred Pearce, NewScientist's Environment Consultant writing in BBC Focus Magazine

'... advocates myriad ways in which we could all reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 60 percent.' - Josie Glausiusz, Discover

'This is one of the most easily readable popular science books I've seen in several years, it's practical rather than ridiculous, it puts the case without being preachy - it really is a wonderfully effective description of the realities of climate change, how it will effect us and our families, and what we as individuals can do about it. So go out and buy one. In fact, buy two and send one to the world leader or large company CEO of your choice.' -

'Dave Reay has succeeded where so many scientists, academics and environmentalists have bringing climate change down to the level of the ordinary family. If you're not convinced about climate change, this book will change your mind. It may even change your life.' - Mark Lynas, Author of High Tide: News from a Warming World

'How can David Reay be this wise, and still so funny? If you want to get to grips with your own CO2 emissions - from air- freighted grapes to the family runaround - this Edinburgh boffin has written a brilliant, incredibly motivating book. Read it and see.' - Nicola Baird, Friends of the Earth

'Someday your grandchildren will ask why our generation lived as if fossil fuels were problem-free. Dave Reay's book might help you answer their question.' - Northern Sky News

'Brilliant work - I am a fan.' - Penney Poyzer of BBC2's No Waste Like Home

'It is not often that one comes upon a book on the environment that manages to be passionate, extremely well informed, and also very funny. Climate Change Begins at Home should be enough to convince anybody that they should do something about climate change and that they can do something about it, while still enjoying a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.' - Robin Harper, MSP Greens, The Herald

'I think it's the most important book I've ever read.' - Nick Crane, presenter BBC Coast

'Dave Reay's book Climate Change Begins At Home was a huge inspiration to us when making our films' - Nicolas Brown, director BBC1/Discovery Channel Climate Chaos with David Attenborough

'A sparky journey through the connections between global climate and everyday decisions - and how to change them.' - Joe Smith, Open University

From the Author

'The reason I've written this book is simple: I don't want to see the results of mankind's uncontrolled experiment on the planet. I don't want my family and friends to see it, I don't want you or your loved ones to see it. Most of all I don't want our children and grandchildren to see it. I'm frightened by what climate change has in store, really frightened...'
