We asked Helen Clark about her new book, Climate Aotearoa and this is the message she shared with the Nelson Tasman Climate Forum about why she wrote it, and where  she sees opportunities.

It features contributions from a range of climate scientists and commentators: Rob Bell, Jason Boberg, Adelia Hallett, Sophie Handford, Rhys Jones, Haylee Koroi, Matt McGlone, Jamie Morton, Rod Oram, Jim Salinger, Kera Sherwood-O'Regan, Simon Thrush and Andrew Jeffs.

Climate Aotearoa outlines the climate situation as it is now, and as it will be in the years to come. It describes the likely impact on the environment and on our day-to-day living situation.

It suggests the changes we can make for maximum impact, what we should be asking of our government and what we should be asking of our business community. In doing so, this is a hopeful book - actions can make a difference.
