    World leaders have agreed to limit rises in global temperatures, yet climate issues scarcely trouble domestic policies. Implementing climate solutions successfully through the democratic process requires a radical political shift and an overhaul of the laws and systems that govern our society.

    Drawing on interviews with politicians and activists, this book provides an in-depth comparative analysis of international climate policies to examine how we can build impactful democratic solutions to climate change. The author confronts the difficulties of fitting the climate change agenda into the current political system, including how to make it a voter priority, whilst proposing practical ways forward for climate change politics.

    “If politicians know the seriousness of the climate crisis, why don’t they act? This highly readable book explains.” Shaun Spiers, Green Alliance
