Clive Hamilton in Conversation: Surviving on a Heating Planet

July 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Tuesday 23 July, 6pm: Clive Hamilton in conversation

Join Clive Hamilton in conversation with Jonathan Cole to discuss Clive’s new book Living Hot: Surviving and Thriving on a Heating Planet. In his challenging new book co-authored with George Wilkenfeld, Clive Hamilton argues that, in the long-running climate change policy debate, we have the emphasis all wrong.

There is little we in Australia can do about the climate we will be living through over the rest of this century. Those decisions are being made by the big carbon polluters. But we can do an enormous amount to prepare Australia for the harsher climatic conditions we know are coming. So why are we doing so little to build resilience to protect future generations?

Clive Hamilton is Professor of Public Ethics at Charles Sturt University in Canberra. He’s held visiting academic positions at the University of Oxford, Sciences Po in Paris, and Yale University. He was the founder and for 14 years the executive director of the Australia Institute.  Clive has written several books on climate change, geoengineering and the Anthropocene.
