Climate Wars

Mark Butler

  • Paperback $27.99
  • E-Book $12.99

As the consequences of climate change become perilously close to the point of no-return, time-wasting wars over what to do distract us from taking real action.

Mark Butler, the opposition minister for climate change and energy, makes a forceful case for using less and cleaner energy as part of global action to save the planet. Doing so will also make Australia attractive for the massive global market of investors and create new jobs in clean energy.

Climate Wars argues that only Labor, the party with a proven track record for national reform, has the plan and the will to ensure bold action before it is too late.
