Abstract

As I write, in the first month of 2019, Australia swelters through one of the hottest summers on record. Extreme weather is the global norm; the science is clear: the frequency and intensity of weather events are the result of anthropogenic climate change, in turn the consequence of human choices that produce greenhouse gases. Once considered a matter of international concern, the recent global attitude seems to have shifted: ‘oh, yes, we know all about climate change; governments are already dealing with it’. Yet, governments are not dealing with it.

Keywords: Climate Change
