Do we risk crashing our economy by tackling climate change? Should we stop eating chocolate for the good of the planet? How did cheap petrol become so expensive? And what’s the real story behind Australia’s light bulb ban? Screw Light Bulbs is the book for Australians who want environmental solutions that go beyond changing light bulbs.

Based on years of research and behind-the-scenes interviews, Screw Light Bulbsoffers positive, credible answers to to how Australia can get serious about tackling climate change. Written in a concise, Q & A-format for people with busy lives, this book shows how everyone – from individuals to businesses and governments, in small towns and big cities – can make a difference.

All authors' proceeds from the sale of this book will go directly into climate adaptation work in the Torres Strait and to the International Women’s Development Agency.

The book is written in a breezy, accessible style that feels neither preachy nor dumbed down: just eminently sensible.
