Living in a Warmer World: How a changing climate will affect our lives,
edited by Jim Salinger (Bateman, RRP $40):
Eighteen essays by chiefly Australian and Kiwi scientists detail what is happening as our planet gets warmer and examine both political and ethical issues.
It is certainly an eye-opening read as there are impacts on our food and water supplies as well as on the spread of infectious diseases.
How is our health being affected by global warming and what is being done to help us adapt for the future?
If you like gritty and topical non-fiction, this could be the book for you.
