The future of climate action

The Paris Agreement, which aims to limit the global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by the end of the century, came into force three years ago. Since then, there have been some doubts as to whether this target can be achieved and, in response, a global youth movement has emerged to demand more action.

In this episode of The Future Of, Professor Greg Morrison, from the Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute, gives an overview of the current state of climate action and the role scientists are playing to ‘save the world’.
