Friends of the Earth's new expert guide to climate change reveals how getting involved in your local community can help to stop climate change - while also being fun, sociable and rewarding.

With chapters including 'In the home,' 'Out and about,' and 'Scaling up your involvement,' the book tackles the question: "What's the point? Isn't this problem just too big?" and looks at how people in homes and neighbourhoods across the country are coming together to help save the planet.

"It's the end of the world as we know it - HOORAY - let's make a better one. Nothing's more delicious than the vegetable you've grown yourself, few things feel better than a cosy, well-insulated home, riding a bike is fun and it makes your bum smaller. Renewable energy is cheaper, cleaner and safer for us all - switching things off saves you a fortune and we are lucky enough to live in a beautiful, spectacular country with a handy rail link to the whole of Europe. Someone tell me, please, what's not to like?"
