Toast - Climate Change Is Doing Enormous Harm. Why Do Many Australians Deny It? Can We Avoid the Worst Effects?

Author(s): Ralph Evans

Current Affairs

In eight chapters, Toast: describes the huge threat climate change poses to the world and to Australia in particular; explains why it is difficult to perceive; goes through the evidence that shows the scientists are right; describes the "war" of influence and ideas that has promoted climate science denial; examines who the "sceptics" or denialists are and why they reject the science; looks at a technology revolution that is making renewable power cheap and will make electric vehicles dominant; describes policy gridlock in Australia; and concludes that we are "toast" with warming over three degrees this century without new leadership, and even so are not certain of being able to pull enough carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.
