5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for Aucklanders and anybody already aware EVs won’t help save a survivable climate
Reviewed in the United States on 22 July 2019
Now that all and sundry are declaring climate emergencies, it is essential that meaningful climate action begins. Researchers such as Paul Mees, in addition to being a delight to read, provide the foundation on which action can be implemented immediately.

Aucklanders, meantime, will understand how transport planning was so fatefully hijacked by motorway fantasists—Mees argues that it was an actual conspiracy—behind the 1955 Master Transportation Plan for Metropolitan Auckland.
