Au­thor: WWF

Pub­lisher: Cen­tury

Price: £12.99 (ap­prox. $17) Re­lease date: Out now With the United Na­tions’ sci­en­tific ad­vi­sory board re­cently is­su­ing a star­tling warn­ing that un­prece­dented co-op­er­a­tion be­tween all of the world’s ma­jor pow­ers will be needed to avert po­ten­tially dire con­se­quences, the tim­ing of this book couldn’t have been any­more apt. While it’s look­ing un­likely that the world’s lead­ers are go­ing to take much no­tice any time soon, there’s no rea­son why we as in­di­vid­u­als can’t act. Hand­ily, the WWF is here to tell us what we can do to help. From switch­ing off house­hold ap­pli­ances when they are not in use to mod­er­at­ing the amount of meat that we eat, some pretty straight­for­ward lit­tle steps can add up to a very big dif­fer­ence. Yes, it may at times feel like a lec­ture you’ve al­ready heard hun­dreds of times be­fore, but all things con­sid­ered, maybe it’s one that we re­ally do need to hear. Af­ter all, we only get one planet; time to start look­ing af­ter it bet­ter.
