Acting urgently on climate change: Ralph Chapman interviewed about his new book

In his new book, Ralph Chapman argues that we have only a small window of time before the pressures from climate change become too great for us to address them coherently. Time of Useful Consciousness is a practical call to action for NZ policy-makers and citizens, identifying steps that are urgent and critical for the creation of a green economy and a sustainable future.
