Almost everyone has a target for reducing CO2 emissions. Not just governments in Europe, the United States, China and India, even the largest businesses in the world have joined the club. The goal is to prevent the earth’s temperature from rising more than 1.5 degrees. The striking omission is a coherent framework for action, which empowers individuals and incentivises nations.
Supercharge Me is a fast-paced, clearly-written, manual on how to accelerate the green transition. Written by Eric Lonergan, a leading policy economist and author of the bestseller, Angrynomics ( a Financial Times critics book of the year for 2020), and Corinne Sawers, a sustainability and climate expert, the book introduces the concept of "supercharging", a new framework for accelerating our response to climate change. Through a series of high impact policy hacks, Supercharge Me will embolden activists, reinvigorate the disheartened, and reframe the climate crisis as an opportunity.
The book is structured as a dialogue, where Lonergan’s expertise in markets and economics is combined with Sawers’ extensive knowledge of the climate challenge and business transformation. The authors’ appreciation of the realities of human psychology, politics and how companies work, make this one of the most accessible and practical guides to the climate crisis.

Supercharge Me is a unique climate policy book that makes the case for dramatic action. While so many conversations about electrification and climate change are couched in incrementalism and valuing corporate and government dollars over public safety and well-being, this book does the opposite. I really loved the format of this book. It was formatted as a conversation between two people, and they extensively explain every concept. This is a book that would be great for laypeople and policy nerds alike. I will definitely be rereading this book.
