Abstract

[Extract] There are interesting contrasts in this book, signaled from the beginning by its deliberate presentation as a non-scholarly paperback. The book is presented with endorsements on its cover (from Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki, an Australian populariser of science, and from Bill Bryson, a journalist, travel writer, and popular writer on language and history). Inside its front the provocative sentence, "Now we are the weather makers, and hte future of biodiversity and civilisation hangs on our actions" leaps out at the prospective reader, and a checklist of environmentally sound actions can be found inside the back cover.
