Climate Change

On 27 September 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) releases the Fifth Assessment Report of its working group on the science of climate change. Thousands of scientists from the world’s leading research bodies, including the CSIRO, together with thousands more expert reviewers, contribute to the assessment of climate science by the IPCC. The reports of the IPCC set the context in which international climate negotiations take place, national climate policy is developed, and many firms make long-term investments.

Ahead of the report's release we interviewed 20 climate scientists from the University of New South Wales, University of Melbourne, Monash University and CSIRO to find out how we can close the gap between the science and public opinion.

Our way of life depends on energy generated from burning fossil fuels (that put extra greenhouse gas into our atmosphere) for energy and transportation. Our entire food production depends upon it. It’s a huge challenge for the corporations who make money out of pumping greenhouse gases into our atmosphere to change the way they do business. If you ran one of these huge corporations what would you do? Climate science is very complex but it seems everyone is suddenly an expert according to their vested interest, view of the world and political views. Why do we debate the peer-reviewed science on climate change?
