Mark Beeson set out to write "Environmental Populism" for many reasons, among them personal therapy and to explore the literature of the climate crisis.
The Professor of International Politics from the University of Western Australia has written a book that in its own way gives readers a whole new take on the climate crisis and is not impenetrable as many academic books can be.
It was during our conversation that Mark talked about solastalgia, a some what new word that explains our emotions after our environment has been, or is being, destroyed, an idea that became increasingly relevant as bushfires tore through parts of south eastern Australia.
Environmental Populism is an easy read, thoughtful, informative and recommended.
