In December this year, world leaders will gather in Copenhagen to usher in "a new Kyoto" protocol, conservatively estimated to cost taxpayers in Western countries somewhere in the region of US$45 trillion. For many people, this will mean increases in personal taxes of several thousand dollars a year, and/or much higher prices for food, goods and services because of new emissions caps and taxes. With that sort of money at stake, there are several big questions Wishart asks in Air Con 1. Is global warming actually happening? 2. Is it caused by human activities? 3. Is there really anything we can do to prevent it? 4. Are climate scientists and the United Nations telling the truth? 5. What"s really behind the push for the Copenhagen Treaty? The answers to these questions may shock you. Air Con is a must-read for every New Zealander, and is the most up-to-date book on global warming available in the world.
