Heat begins by making a powerful and compelling case that climate change is a threat to be taken extrememly seriously and is caused by human-made emissions. Exacerbating the problem is what Monbiot calls the 'denial industry': an active campaign of dissuasion by certain sectors of business, wealthy classes, media and governments to deny climate change with bold assertions based on poor science, often financed by the corporations. The result is that the public remains confused or sceptical and the politicians feel dismepowered to take the bold action that is needed.
