Toast describes the huge threat climate change poses to the world and to Australia in particular. It explains why this is so difficult to perceive. It sets out evidence that the climate scientists are right, not the denialists. It describes how powerful interests have spread false information to undermine the science and promote denial. It shows how a technological revolution is making renewable power cheap and will see electric vehicles replace most of those with internal combustion engines. It describes gridlock in energy and environmental policy in Australia. It concludes that we are toast , with warming of three degrees or more this century, unless there is bold new leadership - and that even then we are not certain of being able to pull enough carbon dioxide out of the air to halt damaging climate change.
