Professor Mark Howden, the head of the ANU climate change institute, and a vice chair of the IPCC, joins Energy Insiders to explain why we have a climate crisis, not an emergency. (It’s about thinking in terms of a long term response, to something that was well predicted, and not just a short term reaction).
He also dismisses the notion that we should expect a “new normal” in climate change. That’s dangerous and futile thinking he says, because with the climate changing so quickly, and so dramatically, there will be no new normal.
Plus: All the week’s news, including putting Coal back in the Coalition, and the Victoria grid bottlenecks.
