Climate change is the defining issue of our time. We know beyond reasonable doubt what the science now tells us.

Our age is an age of superlatives: most extreme this, biggest that, most costly ever. The impacts worsen every year, played out in people’s backyards and communities, and more and more people around the world now realise this is going to be a massive challenge for the rest of their lives. In Hope in Hell, Jonathon Porritt, perhaps the UK’s highest profile climate speaker and activist, confronts the dilemma head on – but also explores the reasons to be hopeful as we seek to secure a safer world for our children and grandchildren.
