Carbon 101

Synopsis

Jul 13, 2012 - 1:00am

Carbon, the way we view it, measure it, control it and price it has come to dominate debates of all kinds. So, what's all the fuss about?

Carbon 101 is a primer that includes descriptions of terminology and graphically explains how we now have too much of a good thing and why carbon dioxide and other heat trapping emissions from humans are rightly called carbon pollution.

To make the primer come to life, it is narrated in a video and podcast by Andrew Demetriou, CEO of the Australian Football League and Dr Graeme Pearman, former head of CSIRO Atmospheric Research, both of whom are Board Members of The Climate Institute. This and other content can be found on this page.

Andrew Demetriou + Dr Graeme Pearman talk carbon.
What is the 'carbon bubble'? And why does it matter?

We’ve had plenty of carbon jargon over the last few years. But carbon is finally being valued and understood as never before and it seems like a good moment to go back to the basics and explain to people why we’ve reached this stage and how we move on from here.

 John Connor 
CEO, The Climate Institute
