Ever felt overwhelmed or frustrated by the climate jargon? Wondering what it all means, and how it relates to you? Perhaps you just want a simple answer to a simple question: are we on track to limit global warming to 2 degrees?

With so much information out there, it can be overwhelming. 

The team at FCA was delighted to host a webinar with Bill Hare from Climate Analytics on 19th June 2020 to unpack all these questions and more. If you’re sick of the jargon and just chasing some straight answers; this is the webinar for you.

Bill Hare is a physicist, climate scientist and CEO of non-profit science and policy institute Climate Analytics. He has contributed to the development of the international climate regime since 1989. Bill was a Lead Author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report, led the influential World Bank Turn Down the Heat reports series in 2013-2014, and is one of the leaders of the Climate Action Tracker. He has been described as the “go to climate advisor” of the most vulnerable countries, particularly the small island states (SIDS) and the least developed countries (LDCs).

With tractors firing up, dams filling up, paddocks becoming greener and the season starting to look good - some of the weight of last year’s incredibly challenging season is starting to lift from the shoulders of many farmers. 

While farmers turn their attention from daily feeding to pre-seeding maintenance, our climate scientists are continuing to unpack the drivers behind our climate; helping farmers to understand the impacts of climate change on our natural variability. 

New research from ANU and UNSW unpacks the impact of climate change on the Indian Ocean Dipole found that the 2019 event, known as a positive Indian Ocean Dipole, was a big one. It cut off one of the major sources for southern Australia’s winter and spring rainfall, and set up the extremely hot and dry conditions for the terrible fires that ravaged Australia this summer,” 

Further… “these historically rare events have become much more frequent and intense during the 20th century, and this situation is expected to worsen if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise.”
