Australia’s Response to Climate Change – Guy Pearse

Despite the fact that Australia is on the front line of climate change, to date our governments have failed to take real action to reduce our greenhouse pollution. Find out why from someone who’s been on the inside. Guy Pearse will be delivering a number of talks next week – in the run up to the election take this opportunity to learn from his first experience of Australian politics.

About the speaker: Guy Pearse joined the Liberal party in 1989 and spent the past eighteen years studying environment policy and working in the political ‘dark arts’. More recently, his PhD research exposed the self-dubbed ‘greenhouse mafia’ – a cabal of lobbyists working for our worst polluting industries. What Guy discovered about the pervasive control these Industries have over Australia’s response to climate change persuaded him to leave the dark arts behind to write High & Dry – his first book.
