‘This book gives you all the information anyone could want about the state of the world and how to save it. Michael Norton’s gripping read, filled with a wealth of facts, will arm you in any discussion, teenagers and adult alike who want to make the case for rescuing the planet. This will give you hope for what can still be done, if we all act now.’

Polly Toynbee, Guardian

 

‘We are standing on the edge of an industrial revolution so great in all aspects; in energy, in transport, in food and farming and within society itself, that one hundred years from now they will describe this moment as a liberation … This book is a powerful introduction to the way things were and the way things can be. Keep it by your bed.’

Tim Smit, founder of The Eden Project

 

‘A fantastic panorama of how to right the wrongs of the world, packed full of examples of everyday people taking action and making change every day. If you ever doubted you could make a difference – read this and you’ll know you can!’

Dawn Austwick, former CEO, National Lottery Community Fund

 

‘Humankind’s body politic is being ravaged by an advanced form of necrotising fasciitis called “profit maximising neoliberalism”. But the antibodies we need to see off this wasting disease are getting stronger by the day – as Fixing the Planet so eloquently makes clear.’

Jonathon Porritt, co-founder Forum for the Future

 

‘A wonderfully accessible encyclopaedia of facts, examples and inspirations that can serve as an antidote to the fatalism that is perhaps our biggest risk today.’

Geoff Mulgan, Professor of Collective Intelligence, Public Policy and Social Innovation, University College London

 

‘This is BRILLIANT!’
