Nicola Davies says, "When I started writing this book I was pretty gloomy. Climate change was big and scary and I didn't think I or anyone else could make a difference. But I'm not gloomy any more. In fact, I'm quite excited because I've started to hear a sound, sometimes like a distant rumble of thunder, sometimes like a raindrop close to my ear. It's the sound of people changing. It's there in all the conversations I had with the people in this book- it's there in all the practical details about insulating houses or designing electric cars- it's there even in all the wrangling of UN climate negotiations. There's shift happening in people's hearts and minds, not just towards the need to save our skins, but towards a more deeply respectful relationship with the planet that's given us life. It could the sound of our species, finally, growing up." James Lovelock is one of the most important and influential scientists and thinkers of our time. His remarkable work in the field of environmental science includes the invention of Gaia Theory which has changed the way we think about our planet. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, holds eight honorary degrees, and was made a Companion of Honour by the Queen in 2003. James Lovelock's many books include The Revenge of Gaia and his latest book The Vanishing Face of Gaia. A mixture of colour photography and diagrams.
