  • Dr. Graeme Pearman Climate Change - Science,
    Society and Us
  • Chief of the CSIRO Division of Atmospheric
    Research from 1992 to 2002.
  • Graeme left CSIRO in 2004 to become a private
    consultant contracting to both private and public
    sector organisations and Adjunct Senior Research
    Fellow with the School of Geography and
    Environmental Science, Monash University. In
    2007, he became Interim Director, Monash
    Sustainability Institute, Monash University.

  • Dr. Graeme Pearman Climate Change - Science,
    Society and Us
  • Much of the psychological response is shaped by
    natural aversion to uncertainty and complexity.
    But changing climate is a threat unlike anything
    we've dealt with before, says Pearman. "If we are
    waiting for perfect knowledge and perfect
    solutions, it will be too late. We have to learn
    to manage this as a risk in which the probability
    of outcomes is weighted against the impact of
    those outcomes if they do occur.

5
  • Dr. Graeme Pearman Climate Change - Science,
    Society and Us
  • "We need to search deeply within ourselves and as
    communities for the sense of the responsibility
    we have towards others, and to the stewardship we
    owe to the millions of species that share the
    planet with us. And we have to do this quickly,
    Pearman says.

  • Prof Peter Seligman
  • Melbourne Energy Institute, Author,
  • Australian Sustainable Energy by the numbers.
  • A Sustainable Energy Plan for Australia
  • Professor Seligman has been working as a bio
    engineer with the cochlear team from its early
    research days in Melbourne University. He was
    intimately involved in the development of a
    successful prosthesis, and has remained in that
    role throughout the products commercialisation
    process.
  • In his book Sustainable Energy by the numbers,
    Seligman sets out to provide a clear account of
    Australias renewable energy potential. He
    analyses a raft of available technologies, and
    offers a blueprint of a nation-wide renewable
    energy system based on the most efficient mix of
    technology, societal, and habitual changes.

  • Earth is absorbing more energy from the Sun
    than it is radiating to space as heat planetary
    energy imbalance, 0.580.15 W/m2 during
    20052010, confirms the dominant role of the
    human-made greenhouse effect in driving global
    climate change.

10
  • Energy OUT is 0.6 W/m2 LESS than Energy IN

11
  • Half a watt per square metre! Might sound small,
    but thats about
  • 20 times ALL the power being used by humanity
  • or 40,000 Hiroshima
  • bombs EVERY DAY

13
That is, if no one else in the world did anything!
14
  • The overwhelming scientific evidence tells us
    that human greenhouse gas emissions are resulting
    in climate changes that cannot be explained by
    natural causes.
  • Limiting global warming to 2C is now beginning
    to look like a nearly insurmountable challenge.

The Conversation June 2011 theconversation.edu.au
15
  • A vast number of scientists, engineers, and
    visionary businesspeople are boldly designing a
    future that is based on low-impact energy
    pathways and living within safe planetary
    boundaries a future in which substantial health
    gains can be achieved by eliminating fossil-fuel
    pollution and a future in which we strive to
    hand over a liveable planet to posterity.

The Conversation June 2011 theconversation.edu.au
16
  • At the other extreme, understandable economic
    insecurity and fear of radical change have been
    exploited by ideologues and vested interests to
    whip up ill-informed, populist rage, and climate
    scientists have become the punching bag of shock
    jocks and tabloid scribes.

The Conversation June 2011 theconversation.edu.au
17
  • Aided by a pervasive media culture that often
    considers peer-reviewed scientific evidence to be
    in need of "balance" by internet bloggers, this
    has enabled so-called "sceptics" to find a
    captive audience while largely escaping
    scrutiny.
  • Australians have been exposed to a phony public
    debate which is not remotely reflected in the
    scientific literature and community of experts.
  • Signed by 76 prominent scientists working in
    relevant fields

  • Zunli Lu (author of study)It is unfortunate
    that my research, An ikaite record of late
    Holocene climate at the Antarctic Peninsula,
    recently published in Earth and Planetary Science
    Letters, has been misrepresented by a number of
    media outlets.
  • Several of these media articles assert that our
    study claims the entire Earth heated up during
    medieval times without human CO2 emissions.  We
    clearly state in our paper that we studied one
    site at the Antarctic Peninsula. The results
    should not be extrapolated to make assumptions
    about climate conditions across the entire globe.
  • Other statements, such as the study throws doubt
    on orthodoxies around global warming, completely
    misrepresent our conclusions. Our study does not
    question the well-established anthropogenic
    warming trend.

DailyMail.co.uk 30 March 2012 ... and repeated
all around the denial blogs. What the Mail IS
good at ...
21
  • The Daily Mail normal fare.
  • Which of course is why so many ordinary people
    get to see all the denier nonsense
  • but none of the serious science!

The Age Sat 31 March
Was it anything to do with Baillieu cousin and
wind farm opponent Lady Marigold Southey? (Who
lives there.)
  • The designation of McHarg Ranges as a no-go
    zone for turbines lies at the heart of a bigger
    question what motivated the government to
    introduce Australias toughest wind farm laws,
    and how did they choose which areas would be
    excluded?

24
  • The Danes arent shy of wind turbines!

Bob Brown gives a serious speech warning that
climate change must be tackled on a global
scale and raises the possibility that
technological civilisations may be prone to
destroying themselves The Age gives it serious
space
27
  • The Herald-Sun allows Bolt to make a mockery of
    it
  • Maybe the aliens haven't rung Bob because
    they're sceptics who value free speech.
    ACTUALLY, Greens leader Bob Brown was always
    like this. So why did the media take him so
    seriously? And will his Green oration in Hobart
    last weekend finally wake up the dozy to his
    dangerous unreason and intolerance?
  • Without, of course, addressing any of the serious
    ideas Brown raised.

28
  • Not to mention his usual attacks on the PM and
    the carbon ETS.
  • (Just wondering when he is going to get stuck
    into Baillieu for his Make Victorian teachers
    best paid lie?!)
  • We might regard him as an idiot, but he is

State of the Climate 2012
  • Total CO2 emissions
  • Fossil fuel emissions

Australia contributes 1.3 of global total
emissions (from 0.3 of the population)
32
State of the Climate 2012
  • Atmospheric methane
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Nitrous oxide

33
State of the Climate 2012
  • Atmospheric CO2 increase
  • Decreasing C13 to C12 tells us it is fossil fuel
  • Oxygen is being used up as carbon is burnt to CO2

34
State of the Climate 2012
  • Mean Global temperatures (NASA, NCDC, UK Hadley)
  • El Niño years
  • La Niña years
  • (2011 warmest ever La Niña year)

Plimers 7 years

Because those are the very high, very cold peaks
which will melt last! There is NO climate change
controversy AT ALL This is ABSOLUTE NONSENSE
from The Oz (again)

Somehow they forgot to mention the other 99.9 of

The Age 11 Nov 2011
46
  • THE world has just five years to make ''urgent
    and radical policy changes'' or lock in dangerous
    climate change, the world's leading energy agency
    has warned, sparking a debate about whether
    Australia should shift to gas or renewable energy.

47
  • Agency chief economist Fatih Birol said if by
    2017 there is not a start to major new clean
    infrastructure investments ''the door to 2
    degrees will be closed''.
  • ''I am very worried,'' he said, ''if we don't
    change direction now on how we use energy, we
    will end up beyond what scientists tell us is the
    minimum. The door will be closed forever.''
