7:30: Climate Change Emergency

All this week 7:30 will screen segments devoted to “Climate Change Emergency” from reporter Andy Park.

Even though the vast majority of Australians accept the science, for years, meaningful action to address climate change has been abandoned or delayed.

But the climate threat hasn’t gone away. In fact, climate change is accelerating faster than previously thought.

The scientific consensus suggests the world has about 10 years to prevent some of the worst impacts from occurring.

Australia is already feeling the effects and in our far north, rising sea levels are likely to make some low-lying islands uninhabitable within decades if global temperatures keep rising at the current rate.

Join 7.30 this week from the front lines of climate change here and abroad as they look at the constructive suggestions for the way forward.

Monday – Thursday 7:30pm on ABC.

    • Many of the dams are already dry and many of the rivers are now dry creek beds. Have a look around the country and see. Climate change is happening. How can you be so blind.
