"South Africa's National Development Plan supports resource nationalism, particularly more coal mines. Together with our carbon-intensive economy, addiction to fossil fuels and nuclear energy, South Africa and the world are heading down the wrong path. Our recent drought is a window into the future...This volume should be read by all concerned about a climate-driven world." Mokoma Lekalakala, climate justice activist and director of Earthlife Africa
