Towards a Warmer World: What Climate Change Will Mean for New Zealand’s Future

Veronika Meduna



'The year 2014 was the hottest on record since we’ve begun collecting global temperature measurements in 1880. Even at its midway point, 2015 was already promising to take over this dubious record.'

As new thresholds are breached, acclaimed Radio New Zealand science writer Veronika Meduna explores our future in a warmer world. Beginning with lessons from our ancient geological past, this BWB Text draws on current observations and increasingly sophisticated climate models to describe possible end-of-century scenarios for New Zealand. Distorted ecosystems, extreme weather, new landscapes and adapted foods are just some of the likely changes that amount to a radically different future for our country.
