The land-based effects of global heating require a coordinated international response. Unsurvivable heat, impending water and food shortages, coupled with population overshoot, mean many people will soon be on the move. How many will move? And where will they go?
Does global heating, resource depletion and declining globalisation mean we face a less stable future, unlikely to supply our needs & wants reliably? If so, what strategies should we consider in planning to adapt and mitigate the impacts?
As millions continue migrating to a coastal way of life worldwide - are rising sea levels and severe weather, coupled with ground water extraction sinking whole cities, posing existential threats to coastal communities?
Faced with the quadruple threats of direct heat, acidification, algal bloom-induced dead-zones, and our unrelenting overexploitation; what is the prognosis for the planet's most important ocean ecosystems and fisheries, such as coral, seagrass and kelp-forest ecosystems?
Global heating reflects atmospheric CO2 concentration rather than our rate of CO2 emissions. Net Zero emissions targets won't reduce CO2 in the atmosphere. Do our historically high atmospheric CO2 levels ensure further global heating and rising sea levels are ''Baked-In'' for decades to come?
What will being past Peak Easy Energy, having consumed all the easy and cheap-to-extract fossil fuels available on Earth, means for our transition to a carbon absorbing economy within the next couple of decades?
