In his writing and filmmaking, Cameron examines how, worldwide, industries pollute and profit while politicians spin and fiddle – and the planet burns.

The law, unlike politics, is founded on fact, evidence and judgment. So a brave contingent of green lawyers now uses the law to force the changes that government and industry attempt to evade. If you believe you’re entitled to clean air, pure water and healthy food, you need to hear the voices of these warrior lawyers from around the world: passionate green knights, jousting for the future.

Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.
