After attending a 2016 public lecture at Lab-14 co-hosted by the Australian-German Climate and Energy College, the Climate Institute and the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute, I mused [pessimistically] that 1.5 or 2 degrees no longer seemed a choice. The IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C has just been released today. In essence, zero net emissions by…

Perspective. My father would have been 102 years old on the 25th of April [Born 1916] The Scripps CO2 measurements at Mauna Loa showed 410.05 parts per million on that same day. 410.05 This is a threshold last experienced on earth many, many millions of years ago. Records show that more than 10 generations of my family up to about…

Mitigation, adaptation … and suffering. And climate change as a “clear and present danger to civilization.

The Age reports on the CSIRO findings: Within the next couple of weeks, a remote part of north-western Tasmania is likely to grab headlines around the world as a major climate change marker is passed. The aptly named Cape Grim monitoring site jointly run by CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology will witness the first…
