Climate Change and Global Health
Climate change raises a number of challenges to human wellbeing, among these is the threat to our health. In combination with climate change, large-scale global environmental changes such as loss of biodiversity, changes in fresh water supplies and stresses on food production systems, have the potential to cause systemic adverse alterations in patterns of health and disease. These can combine with many other specific challenges, including the emergence of new infectious diseases and the re-emerg

Climate Change 2010: Where do we go from here?
Over the past few months, the climate change challenge has taken some odd twists and turns. The COP15 meeting in Copenhagen was widely condemned in the press as a failure; the Australian Government has been unable to get its emission trading scheme through the Senate; Europe and North America have been hit by cold and snowy winters; and there has been a surge in public attacks on the veracity of climate change science. What is going on? This talk focuses on the post-Copenhagen climate - both phy

Climate Change and the Australian Reform Agenda
This lecture is the ninth annual Sir Leslie Melville Lecture presented by the Australian National University. The introduction of an emissions trading scheme in Australia constitutes a significant economic reform. Unlike other key reforms with such a broad impact across the economy, there has not been a broad consensus within the economics profession on the merits of this reform or the general approach to how it should be implemented. In part this is due to the complex and multidimensional natur

Global Climate Change: Perspectives from the Past
People are constantly asking how today's climate compares with detailed climate records from tens of thousands of years ago to tens of millions of years ago. To the best of our knowledge, we have to search back 55 million years to find a time interval where the rate temperature changes were anywhere near the rate of change that is occurring now. This time interval is called the Paleocene- Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM). In this lecture, Dr Opdyke compared data from the Eocene to data collected fr

Observing climate change effects using the Earth’s gravity field
The Earth's gravity field varies from place to place and from one day to the next. The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) is a revolutionary satellite system that allows scientists to use gravity changes to observe critical rates of ice mass loss in Antarctica and Greenland. It can also show changes in the water storage in river drainage basins such as the Murray-Darling Basin. This talk will provide an overview of these results as well as outline NASA's plans for the next such miss

The Dirty Politics of Climate Change
2007 may be the year in which climate change has hit the headlines and the environment has become the political issue, but how much do we know really know about the backroom deals, lobbying and power players who influence environmental policy? Why have our political leaders been so slow to act? Which are the fossil-fuel lobby groups that still set the policy agenda? In this lecture Clive Hamilton, best-selling author of Scorcher, the Dirty Politics of Climate Change , reveals the real influences

Geological Perspectives on Climate Change
Throughout Earth’s history, mass extinctions of species were closely related to physical and chemical changes in the atmosphere and the oceans. These variations were controlled by heat from the sun, the distribution of oceans and continents, the extent of ice sheets; volcanic eruptions and asteroid impacts, air-borne particles, the eruption of methane and greenhouse effects. Greenhouse episodes were amplified by carbon dioxide and methane feedback effects from warming oceans and drying ve
