This book explores the central dilemma of climate change: the science demands urgency, the politics turns the other cheek. Based on interviews with leading politicians, activists, and scientists, and the author’s twenty years on the frontline of environment and climate politics, Too Hot to Handle? explores why climate change poses such a problem for modern governments, even when we know that solutions exist. It investigates existing examples of successful political strategies, both in the UK and abroad. It argues that it is both possible and necessary to find democratic solutions to climate change, and suggests how it could be done.
