Remarks by George Monbiot, Author of “Heat: How to Stop the Planet From Burning”

"Whether it's climate change, road deaths, consumption worship, or state violence, Monbiot is insightful, incisive and ahead of the curve. No one should miss this rare opportunity to hear him speak in NYC." -- Charles Komanoff, co-founder, Carbon Tax Center, Streetsblog contributor.

George Monbiot is a columnist for the Guardian newspaper in England. His website is listed by Yahoo as the most popular columnist site on Earth, outside the United States. He is the author of five additional books, Captive State, The Age of Consent, Poisoned Arrows, Amazon Watershed and No Man's Land. He is a visiting professor at the School of the Built Environment, Oxford Brooks University in England.

Of Monbiot's Heat, Elizabeth Kolbert has said, "If you care about the future of the planet, you should read Heat, and then give a copy to a friend." After reading it, Ted Glick of Climate Crisis Coaliton described it as "an extensively researched, hard-headed, pull-no-punches assessment of what needs to be done in a range of different areas of industrialized human society if we are to have a decent chance of avoiding catastrophic, cascading climate change this century."
