Kyley In Chapter 2 - Tackling Climate Change, there is no mention of animal agriculture, just coal. Hence, I'm not interested in reading this book.

Mark He does only really tackle the 2 big green-economy issues, and that's coal consumption and mining. The Redbook format means not a lot of room to cover much else without sacrificing other chapters.
The book is focused on the most prevalent political spin. You can't expect it to cover every topic. I really do recommend you finish it though, because chapters 4 onward are excellent.

message 3: by Charlene (new) - added it

Charlene McKenzie Even the coal argument is not balanced, but blatantly stacked to 'prove' his point (as many elements in the book are). What could have been an excellent book is completely undermined by the author using it as a vehicle to repeatedly progress his own opinions and ideas, often without any 'evidence' (ironically one of the things the book is supposedly against...). Would have much preferred that he left people to make their own (now better) education decisions.
