Net Zero: How We Stop Causing Climate Change (Paperback)Dieter Helm (author)
What can we really do about the climate emergency?
The inconvenient truth is that we are causing the climate crisis with our carbon intensive lifestyles and that fixing - or even just slowing - it will affect all of us. But it can be done. In Net Zero the economist Professor Dieter Helm addresses the action we would all need to take, whether personal, local, national or global, if we really wanted to stop causing climate change.
Net Zero is Professor Dieter Helm's measured, balanced view of how we stop causing climate change by adopting a net zero strategy of reducing carbon emissions and increasing carbon absorption. It is a rational look at why the past 30 years efforts has failed and why and how the next 30 years can succeed. It is a vital book for anyone who hears the clamour of Extinction Rebellion and other ecological activists, but wonders what they can actually do.

This book is very clearly written, on an important subject, by someone who knows their stuff, by someone who is a friend of the natural environment and, perhaps most importantly, it challenges my own starting point on this subject.' - Mark Avery
'Dieter Helm is one of Britain's foremost experts on energy economics and he has written a terrific book on the next agenda item once the Covid emergency has passed. It is also an angry book... a fine overview of our climate policy failures and the options for doing better.' - Sunday Independent

I read his previous book on UK agriculture and this is similarly practical. You feel that the UK government should read it so they understand what needs to be done and how they would approach it. Dieter focuses on the... More
“Thought provoking book with an actual blueprint of how we stop climate change - a must read for anyone who's serious about what's needed to stop climate change”
It's a great book although a bit academic - not the most easily accessible language but it's a great book.
You can tell it's definitely written through the lens of an economist but that doesn't... More
