Fenner in the news - Climate, flooding, and attitudes to change in Australia (Democracy Sausage Podcast)

8 April 2021

Was the so-called climate election of 2019 lost, or simply never fought? Will a shock event like the recent floods in New South Wales, or Australia’s Black Summer a little over a year ago, change the way people vote? And what will more frequent and more severe weather events mean for vulnerable Australian communities?

On this episode of Democracy Sausage, social scientist at Crawford School of Public Policy Dr Rebecca Colvin and environmental scientist at Fenner School of Environment and Society Professor Jamie Pittock join Professor Mark Kenny to discuss climate politics, and whether leadership can move Australia in line with the growing number of countries making more substantial emissions reductions commitments.
