Fenner in the news - Three writers discuss the climate emergency

17 February 2021

As the world embarks on a vast vaccination campaign, that we hope will bring the global pandemic under control, the other crisis facing us continues unabated: the climate emergency.

Paul Barclay from Radio National talks to three writers about the magnitude of the challenge, and the ‘elements of summer’ – like water, and fire - which are central to the climate change story.



Professor Susan Harris Rimmer - Director of the Griffith University Policy Innovation Hub; leader of the Climate Justice theme, Griffith Climate Action Beacon.

James Bradley- novelist and critic. His latest novel is "Ghost Species".

Dr. Joelle Gergis - climate scientist, and writer, Australian National University; author, "Sunburnt Country: The History and Future of Climate Change in Australia".
