Living in the Hothouse: How Global Warming Affects Australia

Ian Lowe


Publisher:Scribe Publications

In 1989 Ian Lowe published Living in the Greenhouse, one of the first books to be published in Australia on the greenhouse effect. Since then, the signs of global warming have become even more clear and more worrying to the international community, as demonstrated by the Kyoto Protocol. In Australia and around the world the impact of climate change on weather patterns is already being noticed in dramatic and frightening ways. In this new book, Professor Lowe brings us up to date on how global warming has already started to affect Australia, and how it is likely to in the future. He presents a clear and balanced explanation of the current scientific understanding of global warming; its effects now and in the future on Australia's climate, land use, forms of energy and water consumption, and our economy, industry, and agriculture. Living in the Hothouse is an important and timely book about an issue at the heart of Australian life since Federation. It offers new insights into Australia's past and present place in the world, and the ideals that have shaped the nation while challenging all Australians to face up to the changes which global warming is bringing, and to accept the responsibility for planning and creating a sustainable future.
