Graeme Pearman’s climate research video should have served as a warning to the world, but instead it was extremely frustrating.
During the 1970s, Graeme Pearman observed an increase in the levels of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere. He then informed three prime ministers of the potential implications for the planet. Despite his years of involvement in climate research in Australia, Pearman, who is now 82 years old, expresses disappointment that the scientific findings did not result in significant action.

This video is from the series “Weight of the World,” which follows the journey of three Australian climate scientists – Graeme Pearman, Lesley Hughes, and Ove Hoegh-Guldberg. The series chronicles their groundbreaking discoveries, the backlash they faced for their research, and the emotional toll it has had on them. It also highlights their resilience and optimism.
