Summary:"What does a warming world mean for New Zealand? Will we fry and
starve, or bask and thrive? Using the latest evidence from the
Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change's Fourth Assessment Report,
Gareth Renowden puts climate change into its New Zealand context. He
examines how the science suggests New Zealand's climate will change,
what current and future governments can do to address the problem,
and how individuals and businesses can respond to the challenge. Hot
Topic explains the science of global warming in a clear and easily
understandable way."--Book jacket.
