The climate is changing, whether we like it or not. Our remaining choices are around how much we can limit this change, and what we can do to adapt. A new book A Careful Revolution: Towards a Low-Emissions Future, edited by David Hall and published by Bridget Williams Books, tackles these questions. This podcast is an edited recording of a kōrero between two contributors to the book: Maria Bargh and David Hall, at the book’s Auckland book launch in July. They discuss how a low-emissions revolution can be careful, and tika, and how well we are doing in Aotearoa so far.
Associate Professor Maria Bargh, nō Te Arawa, nō Ngāti Awa hoki, is a political scientist based at Te Kawa a Māui, Victoria University of Wellington. Her research covers a range of topics in Māori politics and economics, includng Māori political representation and Māori resource management.
David Hall is Senior Researcher at The Policy Observatory, AUT. He has a D.Phil in Politics from the University of Oxford and focuses on the politics of climate change, in particular the transition to a low-emissions landscape.
