Anna Krien - QE 66: The Long Goodbye - Thursday 22nd June

Quarterly Essay 66, The Long Goodbye: Coral, Coal and Australia's Climate Deadlock

The Great Barrier Reef is dying. Extreme weather is becoming all too familiar. And the Coalition government is divided and paralysed.

In this vivid, urgent essay, Anna Krien explores the psychology and politics of a warming world. She visits frontlines in Australia's climate wars - the Great Barrier Reef, the Hunter Valley, the Coalition party room. She looks at the global state of play. Talking to coal workers and scientists, lobbyists and activists, she considers where climate change is taking us, and assesses where effective action is to be found.
