How We Can Save the Planet

Mayer Hillman with Tina FawcettPenguin BooksLondon2004195 pp.ISBN 0-141-01692-2£7.99Paperback

Climate change is the single most important issue that humankind has ever had to face, says Mayer Hillman. Mayer Hillman believes that tackling this issue is a moral imperative: there can be no global security unless climate change is restricted to a manageable level for all of us, and this cannot be achieved without all countries sharing this common objective. In How We Can Save the Planet, the authors set out why we urgently need to adopt carbon rationing and present a practical plan for doing so. Mayer Hillman is Senior Fellow Emeritus at Policy Studies Institute.

His research has been concerned with transport, urban planning, energy conservation, health promotion, road safety and environment policies. Tina Fawcett has worked on environmental issues for over a decade, and is currently completing doctoral studies at University College London on reducing carbon dioxide emissions from UK households.
