Podcast: Green Nation – Reimagining Climate Change
8 December 2016 at 11:58 am

When it comes to climate change action, looking to the next century, while essential, is difficult to do. But in this episode of Not for Podcast we envision a green future and find out what it will take to get there.

Short-termism is one of the biggest barriers to overcome in the fight against climate change, given that electoral terms only last several years, corporations are driven by short-term profit, and society is increasingly focused on the here and now.

But climate scientists warn that failure to act immediately – and radically – with a long-term vision is allowing the future impacts of climate change to compound.

In the third and final episode of Green Nation, Reimagining Climate Change, we speak to experts thinking beyond this century and ask, what will the world look like in the future?  

Featured in this episode:

  • Dr Pep Canadell, executive director of the Global Carbon Project and CSIRO research scientist
  • Tom Quinn, executive director of the Future Business Council
  • Dr Bonnie McBain, tutor in sustainability science at the University of Newcastle
  • Damon Gameau, award-winning director now working on a new science-fiction documentary, 2040.
