Visiting Authors and Book Launches
Book launch Friday 20th May from 5:00pm
We are delighted to announce Author Peter King will be launching his new book entitled The Challenge of the Commons at The Gloucester Bookshop.
The Challenge of the Commons proposes a broadened and updated sequel to the Kyoto Protocol under the Climate Change Convention to which Australia is a party. The proposal is less penal upon the world's farmers including Australia's farmers who have suffered suicides, family break ups and other hardships under the current regime. The book also critiques Australia's performance, and suggests new measures under a revised protocol. Prefaced by Professor Paul Martin of the University of New England and a member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
