Current Book Discussions 
Our book discussions last for 2 or 3 months each and are staggered so new book discussions are starting every month. You'll find all the information you need directly below: book titles, authors, genres, start and end dates for discussions, and links to the discussion forums. Try to buy or borrow your books early so you're ready for the discussions as soon as they begin. Author interviews or live chats may be scheduled for each book.

Such a rethink will show that governments need to reassess its view that climate intervention cannot substitute for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

If the world economy reduces its CO2 emissions, the result will be a slowing of the growth rate of atmospheric CO2. Reducing emissions does not reduce the total amount of CO2 in the air. This difference between growth rate and total amount is crucial to understanding response to climate change. Emission reduction by itself cannot reduce the amount of carbon in the air and sea, but is like turning a flowing tap in a plugged bath down to just a drip, to delay but not prevent overflow. Climate stability needs to reduce the amount of carbon in the air, which means we need methods that are like pulling the plug in a bath. We can pull the plug on global warming by mining carbon from the air and sea using algae, with potential to operate on a scale bigger than total world emissions.
