The Ministry for Ignoring Climate Change
by David Millar
“Finally, a funny book about climate change … with a deadly serious point.”
Climate change is killing the remote community on Canada’s mist-shrouded Echelon Islands, as warming seas decimate their salmon and way of life.
While the politicians endlessly debate computer models and carbon taxes, and fob them off with brochures on loft insulation and solar panels, the frustrated islanders come up with a potential solution—a risky ocean ‘experiment’.
It goes so well that the Ministry for Climate Change—under pressure for their own lack of action—threatens to sue them for ‘attempting to interfere with the climate’, claiming that’s their job…
The Ministry for Ignoring Climate Change is a satire about a government department that starts to believe it really can control the weather.

Beyond Dubai: Seeking Lost Cities in the Emirates

Beyond Dubai is a light-hearted journey around the Emirates in search of its past—encountering smugglers, fire-starting genies, loved-up camels, and a mysterious mountain tribe along the way. In addition to exploring the UAE's lost cities and hidden treasures, it also tells the extraordinary tale of how climate change transformed a once-fertile grassland into the starkly beautiful desert that it is today.
