"An important book by an important writer on the most important challenge the planet has ever faced. We can meet that challenge -- and in the process come closer to building a just society -- but it will take real focus and real movement-building, which this fine volume helps push us toward!" - Bill McKibben (via email to New Compass Press, 11/26/14)
"It is time that all people understand why the efforts to mitigate the climate crisis have failed to date, what needs to be done now and how the social transformation which will bring about the necessary changes works. Brian Tokar's newly revised Toward Climate Justice: Perspectives on the Climate Crisis and Social Change does just that and that's why I recommend it as essential reading for everyone. It provides facts and explanations to counter the current misinformation about climate change and the proposed solutions to the climate crisis." - Margaret Flowers, popularresistance.org
