David Spratt is the co-author of Climate Code Red: the case for emergency action published by Scribe in July 2008. In this address, David Spratt proposes that global warming is already dangerous, as significant tipping points have already been crossed. He proposes a national mobilisation on climate not dissimilar in character to responses to other emergencies including war and catastrophic natural events.
