Friends of the Earth is launching what promises to be an “unpopular book” on Friday 11th March, 7:30pm at the Leys Institute Lecture Room, St Mary’s Bay Rd.
Cars at the End of an Era : Transport Issues in the New Zealand Greenhouse is a new book by John Robinson.
Could we bear to rediscover more socialised forms of transport? History, oil prices, climate change and the technical limitations of alternative vehicles to the fossil-fuel car are, according to John Robinson, moving us towards an uptake of public transport not known for eighty years. The backbone of the system will be improved rail and coastal shipping.
But the horror of losing the car! Can it be survived? Will we be able to even breed without it?
Join us in a drink to launch an unloved argument whose time has come!
