About this book

Millions of educated people all over the world feel powerless in the face of climate change and its consequences, partially because the literature on the environment is so vast it is difficult to know where to begin. This short book is intended to make their search for truth manageable. It allows the reader to isolate the crucial issues and form his or her own opinion, and while it addresses a world audience it has a special reference to New Zealand. Its strongest claim is that there are really two kinds of sceptics we must rebut: not just climate change deniers but also climate engineering deniers. The latter acknowledge the problem of climate change but argue that politicians will never accept large-scale engineering intervention in Earth's climatic system. In No Place to Hide, Professor Flynn argues, however, that we must face the fact that climate engineering is necessary to buy the time to achieve carbon-free energy, and unless this is implemented soon, we will pass a point of no return. We need proposals that governments around the world can accept without committing political suicide. No Place to Hide is a short, but enormously important book, which will give the reader the information they need to make a difference.

Biography

James R Flynn is Emeritus Professor of Politics at the University of Otago, an Honorary Doctor of Science, recipient of the Gold Medal for Distinguished Career Research, and a fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand. In 2011, Jim was awarded the Royal Society of New Zealand's Humanities Aronui Medal for his outstanding work in political philosophy and his discovery of historical gains in IQ – known as the Flynn effect. Recently, Jim realised that he had no educated opinion about the chief moral and pyschological problem of our time, global warming, and felt disadvantaged – hence this book.
