Praise for Melting Point Eric Dorfman has written a fantastic summary of the implications of climate change for New Zealand. It is probably the most robust resource we've found to date on the subject, and thankfully written in laymans' tems. An easy read without clubbing one upside the head with science. It's captivating to have a cohesive picture of the possibilities that await the country in the years ahead, and useful for personal action and planning. Covering both changes in nature and their knock on effects in the economy and social spheres, the book is concise and well rounded. Best part of it is-- not all of is scary. After all, knowledge is power. A must read. - Chris Tobias Forward Thinking Blog
