Australia, are you listening?: how to communicate about climate change

Monday, 13 March 2017 - 10:30am to 11:00am

At the end of 2015, the climate summit in Paris, COP 21, saw nearly 200 countries sign on to confront global climate change. In November 2016, there was a follow up conference in Morocco. But Australia is still dragging its feet to the table, and the Adani coalmine - the biggest in the southern hemisphere if it goes ahead - was given fast-track approval by the Queensland government and the Turnbull federal govenment is promising one billion of taxpayer funds to kick-start the mine.

This week, Simon Torok, a specialist in science communication talks about how he finds ways to communicate the climate crisis that will make sense to non-scientific people.

Then, Mik Aidt, journalist and climate action campaigner explains a petition he's organized to send to the ABC and SBS calling on Australia's public broadcasters to 'break the silence on the climate emergency'.
