New Zealand edition of Fleeing Vesuvius is going online

This week we're beginning to upload excerpts from the 100-page appendix to Fleeing Vesuvius which was published in New Zealand over the summer. It should be of interest to anyone who is preparing for the transition to a post-fossil-fuel economy. In his preface, Jonathan Boston of the School of Government at Victoria University of Wellington provides an overview of the many environmental challenges we face and suggests that the book, which he considers to be "unusual, critically important and refreshingly provocative", will provide useful tools to help us meet them.
