‘Bugger the Polar Bears, This is Serious’, ‘2050AD’, ‘The Wonderful World of Climate Change’, ‘Pardon My Carbon’, 'Peak-a-Boo and Catch CO2' and ‘The People We Should Eat First’
‘(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.’
THE CANBERRA TIMES
‘You'll learn some great tips for rebuttal when it comes to the deniers and the do-nothings polluting the climate change debate. Rod says everything you want to say. Everything you want to scream. He's right, but Bugger The Polar Bears - This Is Serious is more than just catharsis for greenies. Much more.’
AUSTRALIAN STAGE REVIEW
‘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.’
