Show Notes

The Australian-German Energy College at the University of Melbourne has regular lectures in a relatively small space at its Grattan Street offices and the latest was packed with many people forced to stand.
Holding centre stage as he talked about the "Sensitivity of historical climate simulations to uncertain aerosol forcing" was University of Reading climate scientist, Professor Ed Hawkins.
Among those in the crowd was Professor David Karoly; a senior advisor from the college, Simon Holmes á Court;  a well known and respected climate activist who was the co-author of Climate Code Red, David Spratt, who has written reports for Breakthrough; and the founder of "Music for a Warming World", Simon Kerr.
Professor Hawkins is responsible for many things in the climate world, among them the "Show your Stripes" - a simple graphic illustration of how the world is warming.
