Climate Update 2024: Extraordinarily Hot Globally

Greetings from the Climate Update 2024 at the Australian National University (ANU) where Genevieve Bell, the new Vice-Chancellor reflected on Nugget Coombs, who took her ten pin bowling. Dr Coombs is better know as one of the founders and early VCs of the ANU. Dr Bell pointed out that her predecessor had envisaged the University not just carrying out scholarship for its own sake, but addressing social issues.

Professor Mark Howden, Director of ANU Institute for Climate, Energy & Disaster Solutions and Vice-Chair of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change then gave us the bad news on how the planet is heating faster than expected "Extraordinarily Hot Globally". There is much for those working on mitigation and adaptation.
