Living with the Climate Crisis: Voices from Aotearoa (BWB Texts)

Author(s): Tom Doig (editor)

New Zealand

If much of the world can work together to beat a deadly pandemic, imagine what might happen if we turned our collective energy to tackling the climate crisis. The devastating summer of Australian bush fi res underlined the terrifying sense of a world pushed to the brink. Then came Covid-19, and with it another dramatic shift. Fears have been raised that the all-consuming e ort to control the pandemic will distract us from the long-term challenge of limiting catastrophic climate change. At the same time, many people are hoping for a post-pandemic ‘new normal’: a cleaner, greener, fairer and safer world. This BWB Text brings together researchers, commentators, activists and writers to bear witness to the current crisis. What life-changing events have they experienced as individuals deeply engaged in climate issues? What are people fearing and hoping for in the uncertain years to come? About the editor Tom Doig is an author, academic and journalist. He is the author of three nonfi ction books, has a PhD in Literary Journalism from Monash University (Melbourne) and currently teaches creative writing at Massey University, Palmerston North.
