Front Cover
Black Incorporated Agenda, 2007 - Climatic changes - 266 pages
"This is the book that blows the whistle on the politics of global warming in Australia. Why have our political leaders been so slow to act? How have big corporations succeeded in preventing real action? Who are the 'greenhouse mafia'? In 'Scorcher', Clive Hamilton reveals a shadow world of lobbyists and sceptics, spin and hidden agendas. He investigates a deceitful government and a complaint media. And he lays out the facts about Kyoto, carbon emission and what governments and individuals might do, and have done. Written with humour, urgency and great authority, this is the definitive account of the politics of climate change in Australia."--Back cover.
