Coping with grief by Mal McKissock( Sound Recording )
3 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
"Most of us will experience grief at some stage of our lives and although grief is most closely associated with coping with the loss of someone close to us - a spouse, a family member, a close friend - through death, we also experience grief in response to other losses, a job, a close relationship, health. In the preliminary research for the ABC's six-part radio series 'Step by Step - coping with grief' it became clear to the production team that few people have any preparation for handling grief or are equipped to support family and friends at times of grief and personal loss. The program on these CDs include valuable information from a wide variety of experts as well as intensely personal contributions from listeners about their own experiences following a loss. The series demonstrates that many responses to grief that may seem frightening and painful, odd and even bizarre are very normal and part of the process of resolving grief."--Back of container jacket

The weather makers [how man is changing the climate and what it means for life on Earth] by Tim F Flannery( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
Sometime this century the day will arrive when the human influence on the climate will overwhelm all other natural factors. Over the past decade, the world has seen the most powerful El Nino ever recorded, the most devastating hurricane in two hundred years, the hottest European summer on record, and one of the worst storm seasons ever experienced in Florida. With one out of every five living things on this planet committed to extinction by the levels of greenhouse gases that will accumulate in the next few decades, we are reaching a global climatic tipping point. [This book] is both an urgent warning and a call to arms, outlining the history of climate change, how it will unfold over the next century, and what we can do to prevent a cataclysmic future. Along with a riveting history of climate change, [the author] offers specific suggestions for action for both lawmakers and individuals, from investing in renewable power sources like wind, solar, and geothermal energy, to offering an action plan with steps each and every one of us can take right now to reduce deadly CO2 emissions by as much as 70 percent. -Dust jacket
