Climate Code Red

Description: 

Climate policy is characterised by the habituation of low expectations and a culture of failure. There is an urgent need to understand global warming and the tipping points for dangerous impacts that we have already crossed as a sustainability emergency, that takes us beyond the politics of failure-inducing compromise. We are now in a race between climate tipping points and political tipping points.

This is a book and web site about the urgency of the situation regarding climate change. They use the phrase "Code Red" in the way that hospitals mean it, that the patient is in critical danger, that everybody should drop what they're doing and go to emergency stations, and that it's this critical.
