  • How to Save Our Planet: The Facts is a much needed evidence-based handbook and rallying cry for urgent climate action. Professor Mark Maslin unfolds the magnitude of what humans have done to our precious planet while pointing to how we can solve the climate emergency before it is too late

    Jennifer Morgan, Executive Director, Greenpeace International
  • Climate change facts have never been as understandable or as compelling as in Professor Maslin's book. This is a book to be read, understood and acted upon

    Christiana Figueres, former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 2010-2016, author of The Future We Choose
  • In How to Save Our Planet, Mark Maslin is like an environmental pathologist stripping away the superfluous and cutting to the very heart of the problem with a brilliant clarity. This book is like a roadmap to recovery for humanity by informing and inspiring in equal measure. It is a book every human needs to have to hand as we tackle this crisis head on

    Bella Lack, Conservationist and Environmental Activist
  • Mark Maslin's book is a fact-bomb, one that blasts through climate denial to clear a path for action on the greatest threat that our planet faces

    Roger Highfield, Science Director, Science Museum
  • There are some books which are important, and there are others which are a necessity. And this is certainly the latter. When it comes to talking about the climate crisis and the ways in which we can all tackle it, there is so much information and misinformation out there that it can quickly become daunting and frustrating. How to Save Our Planet: The Facts cuts out the confusion and simply relays the facts - facts which we all need to know. It's powerful, honest and really cleverly written. I am left feeling more informed of the solutions and more empowered to make a difference

  • Ideological debates on Global Warming often produce a fog of confusion in public life. This book cuts through that fog and suggests a way forward. The handy list of salutary and indisputable facts that Maslin has assembled here will ensure that How to Save Our Planet will serve as a much-needed guidebook that will help us negotiate our disorienting times

    Dipesh Chakrabarty, author of The Climate of History in a Planetary Age (forthcoming March 2021)
  • A timely and important book, not only laying out the facts - what we know and how we know it - but suggesting real solutions to the challenges facing us

    Professor Alice Roberts, Anatomist, author & broadcaster, Professor of Public Engagement in Science, University of Birmingham
  • From students to CEOs, How to Save Our Planet has something for everyone when it comes to the fight to save our planet. From the big bang to the future of our fast-warming world, Mark takes us at breakneck speed through the ways humanity is shaping the planet, and presents with amazing clarity steps everyone can take to make the world a better place

    Will McCallum, Head of Oceans at Greenpeace UK and author of How to Give Up Plastic
  • How to Save Our Planet has a compelling and crystal clear narrative but Mark Maslin has done so much more for us. By marshalling all the facts, by giving a reference for every single one of them, he has made this slim volume both a sword of truth and the doorway to a much deeper understanding of the facts

    Vivienne Parry OBE, Writer and broadcaster
  • A valuable resource, in that epic struggle, now underway, to head off apocalypse. Mark does not pull punches about the nightmare that we are staring down the barrel of. And he is helpfully clear that we cannot now prevent disasters: they are here, and we are going to have to adapt to a rising tide of them. But he is right that there is enormous scope for us to act, collectively, to slow down that rising tide - and even perhaps, even now, to create an ecotopia on Earth

    Prof. Rupert Read, former Extinction Rebellion spokesperson; author, PARENTS FOR A FUTURE, and co-author, FACING UP TO CLIMATE REALITY
