How hard science is dumbed down for politicians, public — Kevin Anderson from Manchester says the hard facts about climate change are not getting out, and never made it to the Paris climate talks. From Australia, host Vivien Langford of Beyond Zero Emissions in studio with David Spratt, author of Code Red, plus a union icon & psychologist – on the eve of the Paris talks.

During the Paris climate talks, one leading scientist says the fundamentals of the whole process is “wildly optimistic”. It starts with climate models that assume too much, spills into unreal scientific advice, and ends with rosy media reports saying we can keep on growing without wrecking the climate. Our Western lifestyles won’t be greatly inconvenienced, they say.

The odd-man out at the party is Kevin Anderson. He’s a well-known Professor of Energy and Climate Change at the University of Manchester. Anderson is also the Deputy director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, a leading scientific institute not only in Britain, but in the world.

You hear the last half of the Beyond Zero Emissions radio show, on 3CR Community radio in Melbourne Australia.

Following discussion of the climate action march in Melbourne November 27th, host Vivien Langford starts in-depth with David Spratt, co-author of the book Climate Code Red, and host of the influential climate code red blog.

Then we hear from Dr Colin Long, leader in the National Tertiary Education Union, who champions workers in the transition away from carbon. Vivien’s third guest is psychologist Lyn Bender, from the group Psychology for a Safe Climate.
