Waterstones Says

Urgent, compelling and powerfully direct, The Future We Choose is a call for action to tackle the environmental catastrophe from two leading experts in the field – Christiana Figueres, the former UN Secretary for Climate Change, and Tom Rivett-Carnac, a senior political strategist for the Paris Agreement. Empowering in its practical approach and ultimately optimistic, this is the book on climate change everyone should read – right now.

We can survive the climate crisis. This book shows us how. We have two choices for our future, which is still unwritten. It will be shaped by who we choose to be right now. So, how can we change the story of the world?

The Future We Choose is a passionate call to arms from former UN Executive Secretary for Climate Change, Christiana Figueres, and Tom Rivett-Carnac, senior political strategist for the Paris Agreement. We are still able to stave off the worst and manage the long-term effects of climate change, but we have to act now. We know what we need to do, and we have everything we need to do it. Practical, optimistic and empowering, The Future We Choose is a book for every generation, for all of us who feel powerless in the face of the climate crisis. This is the final hour: it can be our finest. But we must act now.

Compelling and persuasive.

I strongly recommend this enlightening book! The next few years are the most important in humanity's fight to solve the climate crisis.
