Superpower: Australia’s low-carbon opportunity

April 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

About this Event

Professor Ross Garnaut in conversation with Per Capita’s Emma Dawson about his new book Superpower: Australia’s low-carbon opportunity

“The fog of Australian politics on climate change has obscured a fateful reality: Australia has the potential to be an economic superpower of the future post-carbon world.”

We have unparalleled renewable energy resources.

We also have the necessary scientific skills. Australia could be the natural home for an increasing proportion of global industry. But how do we make it happen?

In this crisp, compelling book, Australia’s leading thinker on climate and energy policy offers a road map for progress, covering energy, transport, agriculture, the international scene and more. Rich in ideas and practical optimism, Superpower is a crucial, timely contribution to this country’s future.

Ross Garnaut is Professorial Research Fellow in Economics at the University of Melbourne. In 2008, he produced the Garnaut Climate Change Review for the Australian government. He is the author of many books, including the bestselling Dog Days (2013).


Join Ross and Per Capita’s Emma Dawson for a conversation about these issues and more.
