Geoff Maslen -Too Late & An Uncertain Future- Wednesday 5th July

Too Late: How We Lost the Battle with Climate Change & An Uncertain Future: Australian Birdlife in Danger

Too Late: How We Lost the Battle with Climate Change presents the physical evidence of climate change that becomes more dramatic every year: forests retreating, animals moving north and south, glaciers melting, bushfire seasons getting longer, and higher rates of droughts, floods, and storms – with a new type of severe storm, the rain bomb, causing 10 to 20 centimetres of precipitation in a mere hour. In Too Late, Geoff Maslen discusses the dramatic changes that are occurring to our planet and explains some of their consequences in simple terms: how are land and ocean affected by global warming, what is a methane time bomb, and what happens once the global temperature rise reaches a critical threshold?

In An Uncertain Future, Geoffrey Maslen takes us into the fascinating lives of Australian birds, showing us how intelligent they are, the significant threats they face due to disappearing habitats and climate change and how essential these angels of the air are to our own survival. Soaring through the skies, light as the air itself, birds are the closest creatures we have to angels on the planet. They bring song and beauty to our lives, and they play a significant role in sustaining Earth’s ecosystems. But birds are also facing the threat of extinction. Drawing on numerous interviews with researchers and biologists studying birdlife in Australia and dozens of scientific reports from around the world, Maslen reveals a dire picture of what plummeting bird populations means for humanity.
