Can civilization survive the 21st century? Professor Ian Lowe, author, pre-eminent scientist and president of the Australian Conservation Foundation, thinks we have a chance—but we have to act now, and not just on global warming. Here, collected for the first time, are Lowe’s views on topics that concern all Australians—the environment, culture, science, politics, education, technology and the economy, along with new pieces on Australia’s outlook this century. Written in Lowe’s accessible and engaging style, this collection of essays and opinion pieces is a resource for change based on common sense rather than fear-mongering. Informative, challenging and incisive, A Voice of Reason: Reflections on Australia will inspire you to make a difference.
