Climate 101 - Understanding climate change

PA140117Climate change is not something that is going to happen in the future. It is not a future projection. Climate change is happening now and people are being impacted.

At Climate 101, we have experts (both from the lab and the field), coming to talk to us about climate change. Why is it happening, what is some of the data coming out, who is being impacted and what can we do. 

As well as Professor Tim Flannery and Rod Quantock coming to give key notes, we will also be presenting people who are already seeing and living with the impact of climate change. You will hear stories from: a firefighter (there is no sceptic at the end of a fire hose), a healthcare worker, a marine scientist, a meteorologist and an Antarctic scientist.
