Join Dr Karl and Dr Peter as they explain why: “Astronomers! Your planet needs you!”
Tuesday, 13th July
11:45am – 12:30pm (AEST)

Astronomy offers a fresh angle to engage the public with the science of climate change.
Astronomers bring an understanding of the underlying cause-and-effect physics governing planetary behaviour from the widest perspective of all: the origins, evolution and fate of the solar system itself.
The energy budget of Earth, the fate of our neighbouring worlds in the solar system, and the emerging results from exoplanetary discovery can be woven into a compelling narrative.
This talk asks you to join us in bringing evidence-based reason, drawn from your own field, to the forefront of public discourse.
