'Pardon my Carbon: Peak Oil, Peak People, Peak Everything'
with Rod Quantock, Thursday 10 November


The Mount Alexander Sustainability Group presents

Rod Quantock’s 'Pardon my Carbon: Peak Oil, Peak People, Peak Everything'

'With our finite planet as the star of the evening, the seriously funny Rod Quantock takes his hatchet of humour to the unspoken threats of Peak Oil, Peak soil, peak water, peak food, peak money, peak everything. And, of course, the pachyderm in the parlour: Peak population.

Oh, and Climate Change.

From the carbon cycle to resource crises and population over-shoot, Pardon My Carbon brings clarity and honesty to the greatest issues of this or any other age.'

What the critics say:

(Rod) is the refreshing word on climate change… (He) has found a way through the science, the economics, the politics, and the apathy. His formidable knowledge is slathered in wit.’

‘In today’s world it’s important to learn, but it’s equally important to laugh. Quantock had us doing both (with) wit, character and knowledge. He is current, relevant, honest and hilariously brutal.’ THE PUN
