Can We Survive on a Hotter Planet?

Author and provocateur, Clive Hamilton, says Australia cannot influence the climate we will be living with through this century. His new book, Living Hot, says harsh times are coming, and we should channel our resources into preparing for life on a hotter planet.

Is he right? Do we have our priorities back-to-front? We want to know more!

Join Clive and a panel of University of Tasmania experts as they discuss the ins and outs. Don’t miss this hot conversation!
