Australia was the first country in the world to officially ban old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs as a solution to climate change. But was it a good idea? In fact, does anything we do really make any difference? Written by award-winning Age journalist Liz Minchin and leading climate and energy expert Dr. Donna Green, Screw Light Bulbs delivers an intriguing comparative study that challenges the steps being taken to combat climate change. Rather than lecturing, it uses examples to show how governments could deliver better-run services that would save time and money while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The book is a genuinely independent, straight-talking guidebook on what we need to do to get serious about the future. It is inclusive, positive, and credible, distinguishing itself from other 'climate change' books which offer either individual solutions, big picture solutions, or politics. Screw Light Bulbs does all three in a format that's accessible for a broad audience. It is an easy to read social commentary that highlights new factors in the climate change debate.
