A blueprint for harnessing Australia's renewable energy potential to become a global economic superpower.

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. Ross Garnaut

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 this happen?

In this crisp, compelling book, Australia's leading thinker about 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.

  • A Way Forward

    by on

    A well laid out plan for a potential way forward for Australia. Though overly optimistic with nary a consideration of potential "Black Swan" events, even a moderate adherence to this plan would see an environmentally healthier and wealthier country. Ross explains why the two are not mutually exclusive. Politicians ignore at your peril.

  • Must read

    by on

    Although this can be a bit hard going at times (written by an economist) this is not only a damning indictment of the Liberal/Coalition approach to climate change but more importantly a demonstration that Australia has enormous opportunity in the future.
    Everyone should read it.

  • Superpower

    by on

    Garnaut makes no concessions to non-economists, particularly in the first few chapters of Superpower. A glossary explaining some of the economic jargon and acronyms would be helpful. I found myself going often to the index and following chapters for a clue to many of the acronyms which were not explained when first encountered. Having said this, it is worth persisting through the earlier chapters. Once Garnaut gets into his stride with solutions in the second half of the book, he addresses chapter by chapter his strategies for correcting the various problems damaging the climate and for exploiting the economic opportunities thus created through transition to low carbon. This is an excellent read. I hope our political representatives take the time to read it too (faint hope perhaps). Note that there is an error on page 148 of this edition: The first and second paragraphs refer to graphs 6.1 and 6.2, which should be 7.1 and 7.2 - hopefully fixed in a later edition.
