As we are volunteer based, any help to bring some light morning tea is much appreciated, but certainly not expected (no nuts please).

ORM Talks: Climate change and our life support system

By No Comments

Our climate system is changing rapidly as a result of the burning of fossil fuels. In Australia, we are already experiencing severe drought, increased bushfire and flooding risk, coastal erosion and unprecedented heatwaves. The changing climate is affecting all sectors – our economy, food security, health, and communities. But as we have seen recently with the catastrophic bushfires, it is our environmental life support system that is feeling the impacts most significantly, with climate change exacerbating many other factors that lead to species loss and habitat decline.

This talk will summarise the latest global and national trends in the climate and identify the most important observed and future impacts, with an emphasis on biodiversity. It will also outline what we need to do to achieve a stable climate by the second half of this century, and how we need to change our approach to conservation, but also highlight the many exciting opportunities we have to ensure a viable future, both for the planet’s species and our children.

Light refreshments included.

Limited spaces, bookings essential.
