Summary

This book maps out the links between low carbon policies and their co-benefits, and shows how low carbon policies can lead to cleaner air and water, conservation of forests and other ecosystems, more sustainable agriculture, better use of finite resources, less waste, enhanced energy security, cost savings for households and businesses and a stronger, more stable economy. The book discusses the ways in which joined-up policies can help to maximise the synergies and minimise the conflicts between climate change policies and other aspects of sustainability. Through rigorous analysis of the facts, the author presents well-reasoned and evidenced recommendations for policy-makers and all those with an interest in making a healthier and happier society. This book shows us how, instead of being paralysed by the threat of climate change, we can use it as a stimulus to escape from our dependence on polluting fossil fuels, and make the transition to a cleaner, safer and more sustainable future.
