Australia21 Fellow Dr Graeme Pearman AM, one of Australia’s leading climate scientists, led this Australia21 program with support from Paul Barratt AO, now Chair of Australia21 and Mike Waller, now an Emeritus Direcror.
In 2006 a roundtable brought together leading thinkers and scholars on the science of climate change. In 2007 and 2008 the team undertook major consultancies for two State governments. In both states, Australia21 provided support to policymakers on the development of energy options, in the context of the challenge of climate change. The team also interacted with Prof Ross Garnaut during his preparation of the Garnaut report on emissions trading.
