This is the book that blows the whistle on the politics of global warming in Australia. Why have our political leaders been so slow to act? Which are the fossil-fuel lobby groups that still set the policy agenda? How many different ways can one spin, deceive, lie and obfuscate instead of facing facts and looking for the solutions that are desperately needed? Written with humour, urgency and great authority, this is the definitive account of the politics of climate change in Australia.
