A new climate change assessment book, Poles Apart by Gareth Morgan and John McCrystal, was launched at Parliament on Tuesday. The audience contained representatives of both sides of this debate. The main speaker was Dr Nick Smith, Minister for Climate Change Issues.
This is a somewhat unusual contribution to discussion on this issue. It is not, itself, produced by climate scientists. Nor does it come from well reconginsed sceptics of climate change – although the authors admit to seeing the IPCC reports as “alarmist.”
