"For 20 years, scientists have been government, industry, and the Australian community—anyone who will listen—that climate change is a threat," wrote Holper and Torok in 2008. Ten years on, the threat has materialised in the shape of record drought, coral bleaching destroying the Great Barrier Reef, the loss of Tasmania's giant kelp forests, etc.
Unchanged though, is the denialist mentality of Australian right-wing politicians. We could do with an updated edition of this very readable book to raise awareness.
