Competition: win a copy of Ending Fossil Fuels: Why Net Zero is Not Enough by Holly Jean Buck.

We've teamed up with publisher Verso to offer readers the chance to win one of four copies of Ending Fossil Fuels: Why Net Zero is Not Enough by Holly Jean Buck.

Ending the Fossil Fuel Industry is the only credible path for climate policy.

Around the world, countries and companies are setting net-zero carbon emissions targets. But what will it mean if those targets are achieved? One possibility is that fossil fuel companies will continue to produce billions of tons of atmospheric CO2 while relying on a symbiotic industry to scrub the air clean. Focusing on emissions draws our attention away from the real problem:  the point of production.  

The fossil fuel industry must come to an end but will not depart willingly; governments must intervene. By embracing a politics of rural-urban coalitions and platform governance, climate advocates can build the political power needed to nationalize the fossil fuel industry and use its resources to draw carbon out of the atmosphere.

Four lucky readers will win a copy of the book.

For your chance to win, pre-order STIR's Autumn Issue. You will automatically be entered into the competition.
