The Long Goodbye with Anna Krien
Coal, coral and Australia’s climate deadlock.
The Great Barrier Reef is dying. Extreme weather is becoming all too familiar. Yet when it comes to action on climate change, division and paralysis rule the land. Join author and journalist, Anna Krien, for an in-conversation on her vivid, urgent essay, The Long Goodbye (Quarterly Essay, 2017) exploring the psychology and politics of a warming world. From the frontlines of Australia’s climate wars – the Reef, the Galilee and Bowen basins, South Australia, to the Adani mine, with its toxic politics and controversial economics. Talking to power workers and scientists, lobbyists and activists, Krien considers where climate change is taking us, and where effective action is to be found. FREE. Refreshments provided.
