Climate policy hits Turf Moor: follow Burnleys adventure in Europe and their roller-coaster struggle for survival in the Premiership while racing through an unconventional take on climate policy. This is a funny book, written in the earthy and irreverent language of the terraces. But it has a serious subtext - about climate change. Its a series of conversations between Joe, a Burnley lad who is football mad, and Professor Igor whos obsessed with climate change.

Joe thinks that worrying about climate change is a waste of time. Igor cant understand why 22 grown men would put on shorts and run around after a ball. Igor agrees to spend a season with Joe going to every Burnley game, and in return Joe and his family listen to the Professor rattle on about climate policy.

The book examines why preventing climate change is so difficult, and asks whether it is more a social and political problem than a technological one? Will we have to change our lifestyle? Would new legislation addressing climate change be so unpopular with the public that politicians will backtrack? How will industry be affected? Notes at the back of the book summarize all the serious climate-change material so the reader can look up the important messages in the book without having to stand on the terraces.
