How to Win the New Climate War with Dr Michael Mann, Craig Reucassel, Lucy Manne & Amelia Telford

About this Event

Dr. Michael Mann, distinguished American climatologist and geophysicist best known for his research presenting the alarming ‘hockey stick’ graph, is joining us in Sydney for a very special event.

How to Win the New Climate War: The Plan to Take Back Our Planet from Polluters

The impacts of climate change now play out daily in the news cycle and on our social media feeds. Coastal inundation, withering heat waves and droughts, devastating floods, unprecedented wildfires: the climate crisis has arrived.

As a consequence, fossil fuel interests can no longer claim nothing is happening and have shifted to “soft denial”, distraction and delay in their effort to prevent climate action.

Dr. Michael Mann's experiences on the front lines of the battle to communicate climate science give him a unique insight into what steps we can take now to defend our planet from assault by polluting interests.

Attendees will have the rare opportunity to hear from Dr Mann on this Australian visit, while funds raised for this event will support bringing Dr Mann here to work with UNSW in early 2020 during Australia's most intensive climate change impact season.

Craig Reucassel, writer and comedian best known for his work with The Chaser and for going through your bins on The War on Waste, will be our MC for the night.

Following his presentation, Dr Mann will be joined on stage by Lucy Manne and Amelia Telford, two campaigners leading the fight against the fossil fuel industry here in Australia for discussion and Q&A.

Lucy Manne is CEO of 350 Australia, our local chapter of a global grassroots people-powered movement working to hold leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice. Lucy is a longtime activist in movements for climate and social justice, and has recently joined 350 Australia where she is excited to both tackle the fossil fuel industry responsible for this crisis, and stand in solidarity with frontline communities.

Amelia Telford is a young Aboriginal and South Sea Islander woman from Bundjalung country and the National Director of the Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network. Amelia is passionate about supporting a national grassroots network of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to protect their land, culture and communities from the impacts of climate change and fossil fuel extraction and be a part of creating positive change for her people. Amelia was awarded National NAIDOC Youth of the Year 2014, Bob Brown's Young Environmentalist for the Year 2015 and Australian Geographic Young Conservationist of the Year 2015 for her commitment to building a more just and sustainable future for all young people.

This event will take place on unceded Gadigal land. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that there can be no climate justice without justice for First Nations people. This event will begin with a Welcome to Country from the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council.
