Climate Science


We aim to provide policy-makers, business leaders, the media, and the public with the latest accurate information about climate science and the ecological and social effects of climate change. We provide rigorously checked, credible and relevant information from peer-reviewed sources, contacts to UWA experts who can clearly explain the scientific literature, and strive to foster a better understanding of the consequences of climate change and correct some common misconceptions that can confuse the public.

From climate change to peak oil and food insecurity, our societies are confronted with many serious challenges that, if left unresolved, will threaten the well-being of present and future generations, and the natural world.

Shaping Tomorrow's World

The Shaping Tomorrow's World program provides a platform for re-examining some of the assumptions we make about our technological, social and economic systems.

Shaping tomorrow's world is dedicated to discussion of those challenges and potential solutions based on scientific evidence and scholarly analysis. The program was made possible by a grant from the Vice Chancellor of the University of Western Australia and by the support of the Institute of Sustainability and Technology Policy at Murdoch University.
