Coventry Library, situated in Stirling, South Australia, invites you to meet Tim Flannery when he introduces his new book Atmosphere of Hope: Searching for Solutions to the Climate Crisis on 2 September.
Ten years after publishing his internationally bestselling book The Weather Makers, acclaimed scientist and author Tim Flannery argues that Earth's climate system is approaching a crisis. Catastrophe is not inevitable, but time is fast running out.
In the lead up to the United Nations Climate Change Summit to be held in Paris in December, Tim Flannery's new book Atmosphere of Hope provides both a snapshot of the trouble we are in and an up-to-the-minute analysis of some of the new possibilities for mitigating climate change that are emerging now.
In 2005 he was named Australian Humanist of the Year, and in 2007 Australian of the Year. In 2007 he co-founded and was appointed Chair of the Copenhagen Climate Council. In 2011 he became Australia's Chief Climate Commissioner, and in 2013 he founded the Australian Climate Council which he heads.
