Q&A’s Suzuki Shemozzle

When news broke that the millionaire environmentalist would be leaving his multiple homes and five children to lecture Australians about the need to renounce consumerism and reduce population growth, Quadrant Online asked Q&A why it was devoting an entire one-man show to such a dubious prophet.
