My young  grandchildren don’t know this yet. It is a peculiar circumstance of their time and ours, that what we do about the climate problem in the next 10 years or so will count for or against their happiness much more than anything long life could bring.

  our grandkids’ future ...

That’s why I made this website: so we can all understand what experts understand too well - that the climate system on Earth is changing fast; that our arguments and delays are futile; and that neglecting our responsibility to these young kids would be an inexcusable moral failure.

It wouldn’t be necessary, except that  a lot of misinformation and propaganda has been put around, so even thoughtful people regard the issue with confusion & doubt.

About me ...

I’m a retired physician & university teacher, living near Ipswich, Australia.

Two things provoked my interest in the climate problem - reading Tim Flannery’s book, and the arrival of my grandchildren.

I feel concerned, as many climate scientists do, that their clear understanding of the problem hasn’t been conveyed to the rest of us - so we can’t be effective advocates for the people of the future.
