George Monbiot was a few years ago persona non grata in seven countries and had a life sentence in absentia in Indonesia. He is now a bestselling author, columnist for the Guardian and Visiting Professor at the School of the Built Environment at Oxford Brookes University. In 1995 Nelson Mandela presented him with a United Nations Global 500 Award for outstanding environmental achievement. He has been named by the Evening Standard as one of the 25 most influential people in Britain, and by the Independent on Sunday as one of the 40 international prophets of the 21st Century. His books include Captive State: the Corporate Takeover of Britain; The Age of Consent: A Manifesto for a New World Order; Heat: How We Can Stop the Planet Burning and most recently Feral: Searching for Enchantment on the Frontiers of Rewilding. @GeorgeMonbiot
