GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE – Australian Law and Policy
This book was launched at the University of Western Australia Co-op Bookshop yesterday.
It is by David Hodgkinson (Special Counsel, Clayton Utz; Executive Director, EcoCarbon) and Renee Garner (Solicitor, Freehills, member of Freehill’s National Climate Change Steering Group).
Described as ‘a comprehensive guide to climate change law and policy at local, state and national level in Australia, it also examines the international jurisdiction frameworks established to deal with climate change.’
The book claims to ‘explore the physical science of climate change’. However, it merely uncritically accepts the alarmist global warming perspective of IPCC/Stern/Hamilton/Garnaut. The frontispiece quotation, for example, is from ‘Jim’ Hansen, 2006.
The ‘Denialist-Sceptic View’ gets only two pages (25-27), with the Australian section mainly comprising quotations from Clive Hamilton’s dreadful book Scorcher (2007).
