Climate scientists tell us that some level of climate change is now baked in. So what will life be like in this climate-changed world? In 2031, Zanna is housesitting a beachside house in Byron Bay, living the kind of life that inspires gloating selfies. She isn't thinking about climate change - it's just something in the background squeezing her life choices. She has much more immediate concerns, like whether she should let her parents meet her new boyfriend. Her sister Kat has worries much closer to home too, like dealing with difficult personalities in her eco-village in the hills. Their parents in Melbourne are nervously watching the stock market and debating whether it's time to do a sea change. For all of them though, the good life is uneasy, fragile, and about to come undone. Linda Woodrow, best selling author of The Permaculture Home Garden, tells a tale of disaster, resilience and survival.
