Press Information Pack

Make no mistake, Climate Change is the biggest threat mankind has ever faced. If we continue to emit carbon dioxide at the current rate our planet could be beyond salvation in less than a decade. We need to act fast and we need to act now, but what can we do? Most books and documentaries that tackle Climate Change only write about the problem, not the solution.

ZERO-FIFTY bridges that gap by providing the first ever all-encompassing global manifesto on how to prevent Climate Change. Within ZERO-FIFTY, we will firstly provide you with a vision of our world if we do nothing about Climate Change, and it is not a pretty picture. We will then graphically explain using a combination of graphs, diagrams and illustrations how our planet can dramatically reduce its energy consumption over the next 35 years. This includes explaining how we can substantially reduce the amount of energy our buildings, vehicles and manufacturing processes consume with minimal disruption to our modern lifestyle. Finally, we will demonstrate how we can power our remaining energy demand using existing zero carbon energy generation technologies and a selection of highly innovative urban energy generating towers.

Soon to be released, ZERO-FIFTY will be available for purchase as a 700+ page book and an App compatible with IOS and Android tablet devices. To keep informed of the release date, please send us a message or subscribe to our newsletter at www.zero-fifty.com
