Climate and energy policy

As background to our work, we engage in discussion in Australia of climate and energy policy.

This is done through ▪ published articles ▪ discussion with policy, research and other groups working in the energy field ▪ presentations by Professor Michael Asten, with whom we work closely.

Michael Asten is a recently-retired professor of geophysics at Monash University in Melbourne, former Senior Principal Research Scientist of BHP, and author of over 200 scientific papers.

Since 2015, as part of an international team, he has written and spoken extensively on the issue of natural cycles of climate change. His focus is on warming and cooling periods over the past few thousand years and their relevance today.

US climatologist, Judith Curry, sees the issue of natural variability as “very important” and as “a new frontier” in climate science.

(Professor Curry is the author of the 2023 book, Climate Uncertainty and Risk; see also
