Madlands positively reviewed in the Sydney Morning Herald here.
An idealistic twenty-something environmentalist.
A retired right-wing Finance Minister.
All their lives, they’ve happily ignored each other.
Anna Rose, environmental crusader since the age of fourteen and co-founder of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, is on a mission. This is the story of her biggest challenge yet: a whirlwind journey around the world with conservative powerbroker and arch climate sceptic Nick Minchin.
From a remote Hawaiian volcano to a cosmic ray laboratory in Geneva, Anna rolls out the biggest names in science to try to change Nick’s mind. It’s a journey to tell the story of what’s happening to our climate – not just for Nick, but for a nation divided on the biggest issue of our times.
As Nick and Anna challenge each other’s views, they provoke one another to confront closely held assumptions and question our responsibilities as citizens alive in uncertain times. Madlands is a story told with wit and wisdom. The journey offers a unique, entertaining insight into the science and personalities behind the climate change headlines.
