Guy Pearse Book Launch – 10 July 2007

Guy Pearse’s revelations about Australia’s ‘greenhouse mafia’ made headlines all around the country. Many of you will have read an extract in last weekend’s Age. In High & Dry, this Liberal Party insider shows why John Howard’s climate change policy is reckless, how it came about, and who is behind it. In this damning account, Liberal Party member, lobbyist and former Howard government advisor Guy Pearse takes us behind the rhetoric he once helped write. He reveals that the government has no plans whatsoever to reduce Australia’s emissions, and explains why this is bad for Australia’s economy. He exposes a prime minister wilfully blind to Australia’s real interests – a man who has allowed climate change policy to be dictated by a small group of Australia’s biggest polluters and the lobbyists they fund.
