“Climate Change” (April 19, 2014)


In the final episode of A Science Story, we discuss the global issue of climate change: the science, the stories, and the politics.

First, to get our science straight we chatted to Professor David Karoly from the University of Melbourne, one of Australia’s foremost climate scientists.

To understand the potential consequences of climate change, we spoke to Cathy Cavallo, who has modelled the effects of climate change on marine sea turtles, and John Sharp, who recounts his experiences during one of our most extreme weather events.

Finally, the team draw together their newfound expertise and ask the question: what should we be doing to combat climate change, and are we doing enough? (The answer is no).
