The impacts of climate change now play out daily in the news cycle and on our social media feeds. Coastal inundation, withering heat waves and droughts, devastating floods, unprecedented wildfires: the climate crisis has arrived.
As a consequence, fossil fuel interests can no longer claim nothing is happening and have shifted to “soft denial”, distraction and delay in their effort to prevent climate action.
Attendees will have the rare opportunity to hear from Dr Michael Mann on this Australian visit at this special event
The distinguished American climatologist and geophysicist is best known for his research presenting the alarming ‘hockey stick’ graph.
Dr. Michael Mann’s experiences on the front lines of the battle to communicate climate science give him a unique insight into what steps we can take now to defend our planet from assault by polluting interests.
Funds raised for this event will support bringing Dr Mann here to work with UNSW in early 2020 during Australia’s most intensive climate change impact season.
Craig Reucassel, writer and comedian best known for his work with The Chaser and for going through your bins on The War on Waste, will be our MC for the night.
City of Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore will also be part of the event.
Following his presentation, Dr Mann will be joined on stage by two campaigners leading the fight against the fossil fuel industry here in Australia for discussion and Q&A. Appearing will be Lucy Manne, CEO of 350 Australia, and Nicholas Milyari Fitzpatrick, Yanyuwa and Garawa man from Borroloola and Seed’s Remote Community Organiser in the Northern Territory.
