Launch of Climate Change and the Health of Nations

You are invited to the launch of Tony McMichael’s last book, completed by Alistair Woodward and Cameron Muir, and published by Oxford University Press.

The message of this masterful book from the late Professor Tony McMichael is that in facing climate change, we must put aside our presumptions about humans dominating nature. History shows that human populations have always been vulnerable to changes in the climate, the direct and indirect health impacts are huge, and increasingly press upon us.

Speakers: Norman Swan (ABC Health Report), Alistair Woodward (University of Auckland), Kristie Ebi (University of Washington) and Richard Denniss (The Australia Institute) will discuss the book at the launch.

Location: The Australian Centre on China in the World at the Australian National University, Fellows Lane (near the Law School). http://ciw.anu.edu.au/building/images/anu_ciw_map.jpg

Date & time: Tuesday 7 February 2017. Panel discussion 5-6 pm, drinks 6-7 pm.
