Interview with author Dr John Robinson The oil era is coming to a close and the resulting greenhouse gases are threatening catastrophic climate change. The message that we should reduce our use of cars has long been ignored and now a reduction will be forced upon us. This book places the car firmly in the New Zealand setting, with many facts telling of our own carelessness. The discussion deals with many factors, including the frequent misleading presentation of information. It does not dodge contentious issues such as the loss of employment as travel is reduced. The coming transition demands positive collective action, which is not possible while we live in denial with our heads in the sand.
