An urgent and essential call to arms from one of Australia's most respected climate scientists, Tim Flannery. A compelling and solution-focused declaration of the action required to win the climate battle, and how change must start in our board rooms and parliaments.

Emergencies test governments, organisations and individuals. Although Australia's prompt, science-led response to COVID-19 has not been perfect, it has saved tens of thousands of lives. But for decades, governments have ignored, ridiculed or understated the advice of scientists on the climate emergency.

Now, in the wake of the megafires of 2020, a time of reckoning has arrived. In The Climate Cure renowned climate scientist Tim Flannery takes aim at those responsible for the campaign of obfuscation and denial that has already cost so many Australian lives and held back action on climate change.

Flannery demands a new approach, based on the nation's response to COVID-19, that will lead to effective government policies. The Climate Cure is an action plan for our future. We face a fork in the road, and must decide now between catastrophe and survival.

Reviews for The Climate Cure: Solving the Climate Emergency in the Era of COVID-19

'The real strength of [Flannery's] book is its emphasis on solutions.' * Age * 'It would be hard to imagine a better or more important book.' * Bill Bryson on The Weather Makers * 'No one tells it better than Tim Flannery.' * David Suzuki * 'This man is a national treasure, and we should heed his every word.' * Sunday Telegraph * 'Flannery is a writer who sneezes at political correctness and charges into the densely land-mined territory of the biological determinants of human behaviour.' * Washington Post *
