Climate Change: The Bigger Challenge in 2021 than COVID-19?
Did you know that “Australia has had nine of its 10 hottest years on record since 2005”?
Does that ring a bell about how quickly our climate is changing?
At least in Australia, long gone are those days when COVID-19 dominated headlines. The only two updates that we regularly get are about how there have been no local transmission and the progress of the vaccine. However, we are grappling with a bigger problem that we, as a society, have been ignoring for years now. Climate change. News about bushfires and floods dominate headlines, today. To talk about what’s ahead for us in this front, we are joined by Emeritus Professor, Will Steffen from Fenner School of Environment & Society, Australian National University.
