Discover how governments, corporations and the media have been complicit in climate denial. And learn how technological solutions, civil resistance and market leadership offer hope that a genuine turnaround is still possible.
Unprecedented Crime: Climate Change Denial and Game Changers for Survival (Clarity Press, 2018) is a powerful and persuasive climate-change book written by Peter Carter and Elizabeth Woodworth. The authors will be in Sooke on Tues. Feb. 19 to address the book’s key themes at the first in this year’s Transition Sooke Speaker Series.
From the publisher …
“These willful crimes against life itself by negligent governments, oblivious media and an insouciant civil society are crimes that everyday citizens can nonetheless readily grasp – and then take to the streets and to the courts to protest on behalf of their children and grand-children.”
About our speakers …

He was a family and emergency medicine practitioner before retiring to focus on the climate crisis for the sake of his sons and their children.
