Professor Michael Mann will present the urgency of current climate change science as we see the impacts playing out in the daily news cycle and on our social media feeds. Coastal inundation, withering heat waves and droughts, devastating floods, unprecedented wildfires. This is the face of dangerous climate change. It has arrived. As a consequence, fossil fuel interests can no longer claim nothing is happening and have shifted to “soft denial”, distraction and delay in their effort to prevent climate action. With MC Craig Reucassel (ABC's War on Waste), Michael will present his experiences on the front lines of the battle to communicate climate science and his unique insights into what steps we can take now to defend our planet from the assault by polluting interests.
Funds raised by 350.org Australia for this event will support bringing Michael back to Australia to work with UNSW in early 2020 during our most intensive climate change impact season.
