The burden of the world – a podcast about the climate scientists who predicted the crisis.
Episode one of a new mini-series from Full Story is now available on Science Weekly.
Three renowned Australian scientists, Graeme Pearman, Lesley Hughes, and Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, were among the first to recognize the impending climate crisis. Pearman accurately predicted the rise in carbon dioxide levels, Hughes foresaw the significant loss of species, and Hoegh-Guldberg forecasted the current mass bleaching of coral reefs. Despite their efforts to inform world leaders and raise awareness, they have become some of the most esteemed experts in their respective fields.
In the first installment of this three-part series, a group of climate scientists share the moment they became aware of the impending catastrophe facing the planet. What actions did they take upon this realization? How did they anticipate the world’s reaction? And what are their reflections now when recalling that moment of realization?
