The Science of Climate Change (2010) Australian Academy of Science. Alas not in their more recent publication of the same name.

Antarctic directions are notoriously confusing...

Yep - walking in Tasmania where you can have a view without another soul in sight, get cold but not literally turn solid, and the breathlessness is only figurative, not fatal!

It’s also about mitigating a disaster for the miners - doesn’t matter how much you dig up if nobody’s buying. Transition sooner. Deniers love to say our emissions moves count for little globally - flipside is that our own usage counts little for sustaining industry.

The fact that we can’t exclude such a possibility is both a call to better understand the physical system and to drastically modify our emissions trajectory!

Not helped by having to construct my own more compact list - am I missing something? It would be helpful if the AEC had mock papers rather than a 3 page HTML list.

Bob Hawke - “I just couldn't believe it. Here was the last pristine continent. We were going to be called upon to ratify [a mining treaty] and I thought, 'No bloody way." ✊

Still an inspiring vision, speaking as one who looks at the past in Antarctic ice. /2

"Mining in Antarctica just seemed absurd to me," says Mr Hawke. "There was an unequalled opportunity for our scientists to measure the past and the present with a view to protecting the future. And to allow anything to compromise that capacity was, in our view, criminal." /1

Vale Bob Hawke, one of the significant protagonists in the abandonment of the Antarctic minerals convention and the subsequent negotiation of the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty.

Hmmm that does rather border on the obvious now you say it 🙄

Is there a field of research called Geolitics?
