Losing the battle – Climate Change

With temperatures 1.35 degrees Celsius warmer than long- term average, February was one hot month, an unprecedented level since records began in 1880. The rise prompted Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel to warn we were “losing the battle” against climate change, “You wouldn’t want to dismiss it. There is genuine reason for concern,” he said on the ABC’s Q&A. “For all the effort we are putting into trying to avoid increases of emission, we’re losing. What we’re doing with solar, wind, changing practices, behavioral practices and things like that, we’re not winning the battle with the world now in a climate emergency having reached an ominous milestone caused by human-produced greenhouse gases,” said Dr Finkel who is a strong advocate for renewable energy.
