Author Talk - The Invading Sea by Neville Peat, Puke Ariki

  • Puke Ariki - Taranaki Research Centre New Plymouth (map)

New Zealand author Neville Peat will be giving a presentation on his best-selling book 'The Invading Sea' ($38.00). A guide for every New Zealander on climate change.

'Low-lying coast is a chronically grim frontline of climate change, socially and economically, and the frontline with the most to lose.' New Zealand's coastline is under attack. When cyclones and king tides coincide, there is double trouble at the sea's edge with erosion and flooding. Award-winning author Neville Peat investigates the multiple faces of the greatest environmental issue to face New Zealand and other Pacific nations this century: the science of a warming, rising, stormier sea; the risky reality for many low-lying communities; the sluggish response of central and local government; the engineered solutions and the curly question of insurance. He also addresses the vital question: what should be done and who should pay? 'The Invading Sea' is the first book for a general audience about adapting to the impact of climate change on New Zealand's coastline.

The interest in climate change is high, so come and join us to hear what Neville has to say. We're proud to be selling the books at this event located at the Taranaki Research Centre in Puke Ariki.
