            Atmospheric carbon dioxide (amongst other emissions) and global temperatures are increasing. Are humans the main cause or is there a conspiracy to generate mass psychosis and enable a few people to get immensely rich and gain power? If we can alter climate are we conducting appro...priate actions, or will the proposed means of mitigation change, damage or even destroy our economy and even civilisation? This book investigates the science of global warming and the damaging remedies proposed.

            Geology expert Professor Mike Rackman is studying the Alpine Fault, a 600 km long crack that runs the length of New Zealand's South Island. Every 300 years or so, the fault cracks causing massive earthquakes. Mike hopes his studies will help predict the next big one. Unfortunatel...y, after being shot by a local hunter, the professor disappears. Twelve-year-old Jack Stewart and his cat, Chainsaw, have had earlier adventures with the professor when they travelled back in time to the Taup? Eruption. Jack thinks that the professor has once again jumped through time and is trapped somewhere in the past. He and Chainsaw set out to save him. They end up in the year 1409, just hours before the fault is about to crack. Not only must Jack save the injured professor, he must also convince the local whanau of the coming disaster. The problem is, if he succeeds then the only way he and his friends can return to the 21st century will be blocked for the next 300 years. Eagle Swamp is the second book involving Jack Stewart, Professor Rackman and Chainsaw. The previous story, Crown Park, featured the Taup? eruption. While Eagle Swamp mentions the earlier adventure, it can be read independently.

            In 2011, a 43-foot-high tsunami crashed into a nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. In the following days, explosions would rip buildings apart, three reactors would go into nuclear meltdown, and the surrounding area would be swamped in radioactive water. It is now considered... one of the costliest nuclear disasters ever. But Fukushima was not the first, and it was not the worst. . . In Atoms and Ashes, acclaimed historian Serhii Plokhy tells the tale of the six nuclear disasters that shook the world- Bikini Atoll, Kyshtym, Windscale, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima. Based on wide-ranging research and witness testimony, Plokhy traces the arc of each crisis, exploring in depth the confused decision-making on the ground and the panicked responses of governments to contain the crises and often cover up the scale of the catastrophe. As the world increasingly looks to renewable and alternative sources of energy, Plokhy lucidly argues that the atomic risk must be understood in explicit terms, but also that these calamities reveal a fundamental truth about our relationship with nuclear technology- that the thirst for power and energy has always trumped safety and the cost for future generations.

            What would it be like to visit the ancient landscapes of the past? To experience the Jurassic or Cambrian worlds, to wander among these other lands, as creatures extinct for millions of years roam? In this mesmerizing debut, the award-winning palaeontologist Thomas Halliday gives... us a breath-taking up close encounter with worlds that are normally unimaginably distant. Journeying backwards in time from the most recent Ice Age to the dawn of complex life itself, and across all seven continents, Halliday immerses us in a series of extinct ecosystems, each one rendered with a novelist's eye for detail and drama. Yet every description - whether the colour of a beetle's shell, the rhythm of pterosaurs in flight or the lingering smell of sulphur in the air - is grounded in fact. We visit the birthplace of humanity in Pliocene-era Kenya; in the Jurassic, we wander among dinosaur-inhabited islands in the Mediterranean; and we gaze at the light of an enormous moon in the Ediacaran sky, when life hasn't yet reached land. Otherlands is a naturalist's travel guide, albeit one of lands distant in time rather than space, showing us the last 500 million years not as an endless expanse of unfathomable time, but as a series of worlds, simultaneously fantastical and familiar.

            Up-to-the-minute reportage on our fraught zeitgeist, conveyed with vitality and satirical humour. - Hugh Major Ranging from an individual's birth to the death of the planet, this urgent collection reflects back to us the perilous state of our world. Written by a fed up boomer det...ermined to call out our collective stupidity, Out of the way world is simultaneously justifiably cynical, cavalierly mocking and bitingly realistic. Picture humanity crammed into a gigantic kick-ass double cab ute burning through fossil fuel like there's no tomorrow our symbol of what's important - crucifix tractor Buddha furry kiwi bullet dollar sign fluffy red dice - bouncing under the rear-view mirror as we drive like crazy veering right then left indifferent to the roadkill ... Hauntingly on the nose. I love this collection. I think everyone should read it right now! Many lines bear rereading and copying for future quotation. I stopped making my list before the end and just enjoyed. It is wonderful! - Judith Hoch New Zealand literature has no one quite like Keith Hill. Always surprising, a genuine original. - Roger Horrocks
