For the man affectionately known as the Green Viking, it was the launch of one of his smallest but most eagerly anticipated books to date.

Emeritus Professor Tor Hundloe AM was joined by 50 supporters at the Global Change Institute on Wednesday 28 April to hear what the pioneer of environmental management in Queensland had to say about his latest scholarly work, ‘Adani versus the Black-throated Finch’.

GCI Director Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg said Tor had been at the forefront of research, teaching and practical environmental management for almost four decades.

“He was one of the founding academic staff at Australia's first undergraduate environment school, at Griffith University.  Tor was also the inaugural Professor of Environmental Management at UQ,” Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg said.

Published by Australian Scholarly Publishing, Tor Hundloe’s new book details some of the many environmental implications of the proposed Adani coal mine in central Queensland.
