Solutions to Climate Change

Graph: Carbon dioxide levels over past 400,000 years. Since 1950 levels have rocketed.

The level of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is sky-rocketing. We must reduce this and the levels of other greenhouse gasses like methane.  We are facing a climate emergency and need to act with the greatest urgency. The technology is ready. We can do this. See solutions to climate change.


Australia can become a renewable energy superpower.

The transition to a zero-carbon economy is a great opportunity for Australia – because we have exceptional renewable energy resources that we can readily harness. We can become a renewable energy superpower by responding fully and rapidly to the climate emergency. If we act now, we can have lower electricity prices, reliable electricity, reduced emissions, more jobs, and a more prosperous and secure future. … see Australia: a renewable energy superpower.


Scientific consensus on climate change

Hazelwood coal-fired power station: Victoria Australia

We do need to reduce emissions because we are experiencing “human-caused climate change”. The evidence is overwhelming. The scientific consensus is that humans have burned vast amounts of fossil fuel and forest, leading to:
. sky-rocketing carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere,
. global warming, and
. climate change.


Evidence of human-caused climate change

See what has happened to carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere – and to other key factors. Together they provide firm evidence that humans are causing the current climate change.

The orange line shows the movement of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere over the last 400,000 years. The level has sky-rocketed during our industrial age. … See more evidence of human-caused climate change


Convergence: The Basis for Scientific Confidence

Scientists are certain that we are experiencing human-caused climate change because many independent lines of research converge on this conclusion. … See more on Convergence.

The critical danger: Amplifying feedbacks

The critical danger is that the current global warming could kick off a vicious cycle of escalating temperature, with warming causing more warming, and this warming causing more warming, and so on. … See more on the critical danger: amplifying feedbacks.

  1. Thank you for this useful compilation of information – VERY useful to have on hand if one is having a debate with a denier of climate change
