From the publisher

‘Very well-informed, splendidly provocative – a must-read for the rich debates to come!’ JONATHON PORRITT

With humankind still so dependent on fossil fuels, we won’t be able to reach our targets on cutting carbon emissions quickly enough to slow global warming. So what else can we do?

In Intervention Earth, Gwynne Dyer speaks to more than fifty of the world’s leading climate scientists to gather a wide range of ideas on how we might cool the planet and avoid catastrophe. Should we spray water droplets into the atmosphere to thicken clouds? Should we copy volcanoes and release sulphates into the stratosphere to reflect the sun’s rays? Can we bury carbon dioxide underground or at the bottom of the oceans?

Published to coincide with Earth Day 2024, Intervention Earth is a brilliant, challenging and constructive book, packed with the latest thinking on the climate emergency.
