Hopeful and provocative, this account" "considers the principle social and ecological threats facing Australia and outlines the ways in which these crises need to be confronted and addressed. Taking a radical approach to climate change prevention, this bold manifesto claims that Australia's current focus on over-consumption and "greener lifestyles" are ineffective.
