Synopsis

Gaia Warriors by Nicola Davies

This book contains interviews with 'Gaia Warriors' all over the world who are working in fashion, architecture, conservation, research, the law and food; who are campaigning for people to switch off lights, cycle more, fly less; who are trying to live differently and to change minds - and having fun doing it! It is a collaboration between James Lovelock, renowned scientist and the inventor of Gaia Theory, and Nicola Davies, award-winning non-fiction writer for children. This vital book is publishing to coincide with the UN's Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in November 2009.
