            Australia's favourite science communicator explains the facts about climate change - and how we can fix it Is the planet reeeeeally warming up? But carbon's natural, isn't it? How could planes fly without fossil fuels? What's a pteropod and why should I care? Kelp? How can it hel...p? One of Dr Karl Kruszelnicki's jobs as Australia's most popular science communicator is to answer people's questions about climate change. Now, in this never dull, easy-to-understand guide Dr Karl explains the science of climate change and how we can fix it (we can!). So when your uncle says (again) that it's a load of hooey (or an illuminati conspiracy), you can keep your cool and talk like a boss about why it's getting hotter and what we can do about it.

            SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER The highly anticipated new book from the internationally bestselling, prize-winning author of Landmarks, The Lost Words and The Old Ways 'You'd be crazy not to read this book' The Sunday Times 'Underland is a magnificent feat of writing, travelling and thi...nking that feels genuinely frontier pushing, unsettling and exploratory' Evening Standard Discover the hidden worlds beneath our feet... In Underland, Robert Macfarlane takes us on a journey into the worlds beneath our feet. From the ice-blue depths of Greenland's glaciers, to the underground networks by which trees communicate, from Bronze Age burial chambers to the rock art of remote Arctic sea-caves, this is a deep-time voyage into the planet's past and future. Global in its geography, gripping in its voice and haunting in its implications, Underland is a work of huge range and power, and a remarkable new chapter in Macfarlane's long-term exploration of landscape and the human heart. 'Marvellous... Neverending curiosity, generosity of spirit, erudition, bravery and clarity... This is a book well worth reading' The Times 'Extraordinary... at once learned and readable, thrilling and beautifully written' Observer 'Attentive, thoughtful, finely honed... I turned the last page with the unusual conviction of having been in the company of a fine writer who is - who must surely be - a good man' Telegraph 'Poetry, science, a healthy sense of the uncanny and a touch of the shamanic are the hallmarks of his writing... This is a journey that tells the story not just of nature but of human nature. And there is noone I would more gladly follow on it' i 'Startling and memorable, charting invisible and vanishing worlds. Macfarlane has made himself Orpheus, the poet who ventures down to the darkest depths and returns - frighteningly alone-to sing of what he has seen' New Statesman
