In this profound new book, Alastair McIntosh explores the science, psychology and spirituality of climate change.

He summarises the up-to-date science and shows the damage caused both by climate-change denial as well as exaggeration.

In outlining the technological and policy options to cut greenhouse gases, he argues that neither will be anywhere near sufficient unless we grasp the 'twin drivers' - namely, world population and excess consumption - in ways that deepen people's dignity and freedom. This book's enduring importance will lie in the uniqueness of the remedies proposed: our urgent need to reconnect with the earth, to build community, and own inner lives of depth psychology and even spirituality.

This transforms climate change into a chance to discover deeper aspects of our humanity.

The result is a scintillating guide to what it takes to make us riders on the storm.
