Product description

Product Description

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 compliant media. And he lays out the facts about Kyoto, carbon emissions 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.

Longlisted, 2007 Walkley Non-Fiction Book Award

Clive Hamilton is the executive director of the Australia Institute and a leading authority on the economics and politics of climate change. His books include the bestsellers Scorcher, Growth Fetish, Affluenza (as co-author), What's Left? (Quarterly Essay 21) and Silencing Dissent (as co-editor and contributor).
