The Carbon Club description
Why is it that, despite overwhelming popular support for action on Climate Change, Australia has been a policy laggard in this area? One of Australia’s most respected investigative journalists Marian Wilkinson tells all in The Carbon Club. Revealing the network of powerful climate change sceptics, politicians and business leaders who have sought to control Australia’s climate policy, and with extraordinary access to players from all sides, Marian has written a riveting and disturbing account of the self-interest and betrayal behind Australia’s criminally poor response to Climate Change.
