Hi there and welcome to this year.
Hope your Christmas went great.
Not much to report here in Joondlaup WA, good tine with family and friends over the break.
The big news in literary circles is that Clive Hamilton (author of my #1 read for 2005 – Affluenza) is brining out 2 books in 2007, so if you are into a good read of a political, social comment nature with an environmental edge you should grab both his books this year.
The Politics of Climate Change, coming in June damns the Australian response to global warming. But before that book he and Sarah Maddison assess government tactics used to stifle independent experts, communicators, and organisations critical of government policies in Silencing Dissent (February). He is not a conspiracy type guy, his research and reporting are spot on!
Off to Fire it Up camp for a few days.
