The Madhouse Effect: What is Stopping Action on Climate Change?
Despite evidence of climate change becoming more and more obvious, substantive action on climate change in Australia has been stalled for some time. In the US, the Trump government is rolling back climate change initiatives and environmental protections as fast as it can.
Why is this happening? What are the factors that push governments to inaction or worse? What role can business and the community play? And what needs to shift if we want effective climate change action?
This panel brings together noted US climatologist Michael E. Mann, psychologist Stephan Lewandowsky and activist Anna Rose to look at these complex questions from a range of perspectives and to share their suggestions for how to break the stalemate.
