ANU Meet the Author – Jennifer Rayner (Canberra)

13 June at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm AEST

Jennifer Rayner will be in conversation with Tom Lowrey on her new book Climate Clangers The Bad Ideas Blocking Real Action

The climate assertions that only prevent effective action, and what could replace them.

The impacts of climate change keep getting worse, but the typical framing of the problem and the solutions so far being pursued are seriously insufficient. As a result, the steps we’re taking to build a clean energy economy and move beyond fossil fuels are far too incremental for the existential nature of this threat. So what’s holding us back?

Climate Clangers calls out three bad ideas that are blocking action on climate change at the speed and scale we need right now: Decarbonising our economy must not impact economic growth. Net-zero accounting can keep global heating within survivable limits. Strong action now will cost us more than we can afford
