David Thorpe at Hay Lit Festival

Cambria Books author David Thorpe at the Hay Literature Festival promoting his book Stormteller and talking about climate change and new literature featuring climate themes.

From the Daily Telegraph

Climate activists are targeting children through a new range of ‘cli-fi’ – climate fiction – novels which seek to highlight the dangers of global warming.

David Thorpe, author of the book Stormteller, said that children were more open minded and claimed that writers could ‘infect’ their minds with ‘seriously subversive viral ideas’.

He was speaking at the Hay Festival alongside ‘cli-fi’ authors George Marshall and Saci Lloyd.

“I like writing for children because their minds are still forming,” said Mr Thorpe whose novel is set in a coastal Wales ravaged by climate change and rising sea levels.

Stormteller can be purchased from good bookshops, from the Welsh Books Council distribution and from us DIRECT.

Re-inventing Leadership by Dr.Paul Thomas

In the battle against management, Dr Paul Thomas is a man on a mission!

As seen in the BBC TV & Radio documentary ‘Ban the Boss’ documentary series.

A mission to support forward-thinking, progressive and ‘human’ business organisations by helping them to get rid of the plague of unnecessary middle management that he believes is stifling our working lives and our economy. But he doesn’t just see this as a local issue, but a global pandemic that is holding back the true potential of both individuals and businesses worldwide.

Champion of “the art of creating a leadership environment in which elite performance reveals itself” – Dr Paul Thomas believes true democracy, freedom, creativity and trust need to be at the heart of every organisation for it to flourish, maximise efficiency and profits, and continue to exist in the 21st century and beyond. Only in this sort of environment will people excel and great leaders truly exist.

Solving the Grim Equation by Pat Dodd Racher

Solving the Grim Equation is the important new ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’ book from Pat Dodd Racher NOW PUBLISHED.

Solving the Grim Equation considers how globalisation increases corporate power and marginalises communities, how fossil fuel use accelerates climate change, and why material standards of living will have to decline in all countries where populations use more than their fair share of natural resources.

Solving the Grim Equation continues the story begun in Empty Plates Tomorrow? which was published in 2007. The more we consume now, the less will be available to future generations, because continuous population growth and economic expansion on a finite planet are impossible. The dangerous consequences of the Fossil Fuel Age are apparent all over the planet and in the atmosphere above it.

The future of ‘less’ will be different but need not be the appalling dystopia which some predict. There are hopeful, if small, initiatives all around the world, and examples from Wales feature in this book.

The debt-laden global financial system is a colossal barrier because repayments of debt interest and capital require economic growth. The alternative is a depression in which populations are impoverished, unless governments agree debt cancellations with each other and plan for progressive reductions in energy use. Governments with the welfare of their populations at heart will also have to control the global banking industry, which contributes in no small way to the staggering wealth inequalities on this small planet.

Available in print and eBook direct or from bookshops worldwide and Amazon.
