Overview

Bringing to light serious world environment issues, this thought-provoking and informative collection of essays and opinion pieces illustrates the topics—from politics and economics to culture and health—that have engaged the Australian community and will continue to do so into its uncertain future. While a sobering reminder of how little progress has been made, this is also an environmental and community wake-up call—through logic rather than fear-mongering—that will inspire people to make a difference.
