Roger Cox is an attorney and pragmatic visionary. In his compelling and illuminating book “Revolution Justified – why only the law can save us now” he calls for judicial intervention to save the planet and humanity. In this book he discusses the dangers of peak oil and climate change as well as the failure of democracy and the market to address these issues.
According to Roger the law is our only hope of breaking the status quo and of achieving the much needed change to clean energy. His book explains how, states can be forced by citizens and NGO’s to reduce carbon emissions through the use of the judicial system.
His book is promoted by international and national leaders in sustainability as an essential read. In cooperation with the Dutch NGO Urgenda, Roger is materializing his idea of suing the Dutch government for it’s inadequate climate policies. He is also setting up a network of plaintiffs for similar proceedings in other European countries.
