The History and Future of Climate Change in Australia

April 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join award-winning climate scientist and writer Joëlle Gergis as she shares her fascinating journey through Australia to unearth our climate history.

Joëlle’s new book, Sunburnt Country (MUP, 2018), pieces together Australia’s climate history for the first time. It uncovers a continent long vulnerable to climate extremes and variability, gives an unparalleled perspective on how human activities have altered patterns that have been with us for millions of years, and what climate change looks like in our own backyard. Sunburnt Country highlights the impact of a warming planet on Australian lifestyles and ecosystems and the power we all have to shape future life on Earth.
Also speaking is Dr David Karoly, University of Melbourne
