Action we take during the current decade will determine whether we are able to meet the Paris Agreement targets and avoid catastrophic climate change.
In this Cosmos Briefing, we learn what we must do in the critical decade to respond to the threats imposed by global warming.
Cosmos teamed up with The Australian Atmospheric and Oceanographic Society and a live audience to discuss the challenges, and threats we all face.
Your host is Cosmos journalist Ellen Phiddian.
Our guests are:
Dr Roger Dargaville, the current President of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society, and Deputy Director of the Monash Energy Institute.
Dr Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick, a Senior Lecturer and ARC Future Fellow in the School of Science at the University of New South Wales Canberra, and a chief investigator on the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes.
Dr Pep Canadell, the Executive Director of the Global Carbon Project, Chief Research Scientist in the CSIRO Climate Science Centre, Chief Lead Investigator in the Climate Systems Hub of the National Environmental Science Program (NESP).
