Review

'This book is an inspiration for those of us trying to build a sustainable future - and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to know how and why we must deploy and enforce the law in the fight against ecological destruction.' -- Caroline Lucas 'ClientEarth have been pioneers in using the tool of environmental legislation to tackle the modern scourge of air pollution. This is the story of how they're doing it.' -- Ed Miliband 'When compassion for life on Earth, or call it fury at the everyday and casual destruction of our stunning biosphere, when these two powers are honed by these exceptional environmental lawyers to a fierce and fine point, change happens, and the world is a better place for it. Humanity's grace and dignity are restored each time a case is successfully brought and won - it is truly a global battle fought between the mindless proponents of tragedy, and the (sometimes extremely) courageous proponents of hope. Read this book.' -- Emily Young Sculpture 'This excellent book shows how it is possible to use the law to hold politicians to the promises that they make when they sign agreements on environmental and climate change.' -- Peter Wadhams Professor of Ocean Physics, University of Cambridge 'The story of ClientEarth - and of its charismatic Founder, James Thornton - is truly inspirational. His only client is our battered, abused planet, and his favoured arsenal is the rule of law in defense of public interest. The hard-fought victories that you'll hear about are all important, but more important still are the vision, values and gritty dedication of an amazing group of lawyers and campaigners to whom we owe a very great deal.' -- Jonathon Porritt 'Client Earth provides a tantalizing glimpse of how a variety of strategies can converge to create a global environmental enforcement effort.' Nature 'Can lawyers save the planet? Musty court rooms may be less romantic than hugging trees and less dramatic than accosting whalers on the high seas, but the answer may be yes. And guess what, lawyers can hug trees and have a lyrical turn of phrase, too.' -- Fred Pearce 'Really inspirational.' Anthony Giddens 'For an inspiring account of how social entrepreneurialism and ingenuity can make great strides in holding governments to account, this volume is well worth reading.' Hackney Citizen
