crunchRick Boven of the New Zealand Institute recently gave a riveting presentation to Auckland Fabians on the high-level environmental trends impacting on NZ and global prospects. Rick was summarising a major work in progess, but his impassioned delivery left the audience in no doubt as to the profound implications of his findings.
The most important point to be drawn from the presentation was the increasing probability of catastrophic consequences stemming from the failure of leadership at all levels to address these issues. A copy of Rick's presentation can be found here.
