Under the Weather

Renwick, James

  0 Reviews

We all know what it means to be ‘under the weather’ in terms of our own health but in this book about New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and climate change, it is the perfect description of the current state of play as the planet/world heats up. Balancing explanations about the cause and effects of climate change, with possible solutions, Professor Renwick applies his considerable experience and an evidence-based approach to the challenges that face agriculture and food security, the economy and our lifestyles.

Compelling and hopeful, this is an authoritative examination of what the future could and should hold for us.
