Dr Jules Kajtar on Climate Science | Ask an expert #001

May 13, 2022

Genus Co-Founder Jon Owen interviews Dr Jules Kajtar, a Research Fellow from the University of Tasmania and the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX).

In this interview, Jon and Dr Kajtar discuss Climate Science – what it is, why it matters and what it tells us. They discuss the scientific evidence that proves that humans are having an impact on climate change.  

Dr Kajtar raises the concept of marine heatwaves – the phenomenon that causes parts of our seas and oceans to heat up. It's not just on land that climate change is being seen.

They then go on to discuss what people can do to help reduce the effects of climate change and what the future might look like.

Watch this video if you are interested in climate change, the environment, sustainability, or science. This is great content for school projects, or for anyone who wants to learn more about how we know that climate change is caused in large by humans. It also introduces a topic that we don't hear too much about – marine heatwaves. Fascinating!
