  • Film Project – Producing a documentary series on “the existential threat of climate change from a uniquely Australian economic and national security perspective.”
  • HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Home Front (June 2019, 16min) – First part of a documentary series that “presents some of Australia’s former security, defence and political leaders who all warn us that climate change is ‘a catalyst for conflict’ and a ‘threat multiplier’ as it fuels instability in the world’s most vulnerable regions.”
    • What Lies Beneath  (Aug. 2018, 44p.) – A report that “argues for an urgent risk reframing of climate research and the IPCC reports.” It “is the inside story of how climate policy-making has become embedded in a culture of failure and scientific reticence.” It  “brings together the voices of some of the world’s leading scientists.”
