Two degrees. Winning the climate challenge also in economics


Two degrees, and many many more ideas and solutions designed starting from climate change today under the eyes of all. Starting from two degrees that change and will change our lives here is a book that tries, manages, to indicate possible directions in which to do so by choosing the lesser evils and, at times, even benefits and hopelessly serene horizons.

Written by Gianni Silvestrini, for Ambiente editions, those of Two degrees they are pages that help to accurately reflect, through precise observations, what is happening in the world of energy, which is currently in rapid transformation. And in the world where we all hang out, because now these "two degrees"Fateful you see and hear them in the daily life of small perceptible effects to the most attentive.

THE climate changes, can be seen from the wardrobe change that slips from week to week, but Two degrees also tells us about the loss of biodiversity, pollution, and not just "smog" but in many other less famous forms and screaming. And then, entering the world of energy, of fossil sources and those alternatives in a landscape in which access to the classic is sometimes problematic, and at the same time the growth of both the population and consumption is unstoppable.


These two degrees, assuming that there remain two, much discussed also a Paris at COP21, can radically transform entire sectors, reading Silvestrini we realize that it is not such bad news. Change does not necessarily have to be done forced and getting worse.

In fact, you can give space to energies and to renewables, you can get that nice habit of using the car sharing demanding it even in one's own city and with affordable rates. In the garden, at home, opt for the LED as many are already doing not only for the fateful Two Degrees but also for personal savings.

Silvestrini accompanies us in the world of nanotechnologies and 3D printing, robotics and biomimicry showing us the transformations that these still sometimes “science fiction” themes can bring about in our practical life as well. More down to earth, but always in the segment of the two degrees that the book tells, there are also the practices of sharing economy and of circular economy who are now defeating the “disposable” becerro.


The world is changing, even direction, and much more than that two degrees, but what is politics doing? It does not lead, it would seem, but it does not even follow that much, but as Silvestrini rightly maintains, all these transformations cannot be separated from an active role of politics.

In "Two degrees”There is no lack of observations and indications in this regard, probing what has already been done in different parts of the world, what to do, with appointments and deadlines that cannot be postponed. Also because the change, not just climate change, is taking place and the opportunity, for young people, but not only, is great, and cannot be thrown away.

For those who do not want to miss their chance, for those who do not want to miss good news and opportunities and for those who do not want to miss the beat in a world that changes from degree to degree but fast, "Two degrees”Is available here in all clear pragmatic wisdom that is needed today.
