We put the call-out to the Tasmanian public to ask exactly what did they want to know about climate change. We then put a team of researchers together to travel around the Australian state of Tasmania to provide answers to the most popular questions asked from each region. Here, you can follow the Curious Climate team’s road trip around Tassie and see some of the highlights from the public forums. For more information about the project and video links please visit: https://curiousclimate.org.au/ All the videos of our researchers providing their insights into the questions asked by the public please can be foudn through the Centre for Marine Socioecology YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list... This project was delivered in partnership with the Centre for Marine Socioecology, ABC Radio Hobart, Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania, CSIRO, Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture. Funding was provided by National Science Week and the Tasmanian Government, through the Tasmanian Climate Change Office.

Dr Ingrid van Putten (CSIRO, Centre for Marine Socioecology) provides insights on the topic of ‘Why do people deny climate change?’. This footage was shot at live public forums for the Curious Climate Tasmania project held across Tasmania in August 2019 as part of Australian National Science Week.

Curious Climate was initiated by a group of scientists & journalists that wanted to know what the Tasmanian public were curious about in terms of climate change. This series of presentations cover the most popular questions submitted by the Tasmanian public, in response to a call out for questions from ABC Radio, and aim to bridge the gap between experts and audiences with credible, relevant information about climate change.
