Climate Change

I have been writing on the effects of human induced climate change, sea level rise, ocean acidification, environmental and social Impacts of global warming, and climate protests for the Indymedia Network since 2004 contributing primarily to Melbourne Indymedia (now defunct), Sydney Indymedia, San Fransisco Bay Area Indymedia, Australia Indymedia, Climate Indymedia and features to the Global Indymedia site The articles have been wideranging from latest scientific reports to climate protests.

Climate Change and Heatwaves in Melbourne

I published in February 2015 the literature review I started preparing during Higher Education Diploma of Tertiary Studies single subject study (Academic Research) at Melbourne Polytechnic in 2014. Climate change and heatwaves in Melbourne - a Review can be read on my blog, or downloaded as a PDF. The other two assessments of the subject were an annotated bibliography containing over 100 annotations and a formal classroom presentation, which was also published at slideshare. I received a high distinction for the subject overall.

I now do a substantial amount of my soapboxing through photoessays on flickr and short videos of events on youtube. You can see my latest videos on Youtube below, and a random selection of photos from my flickr site. I sometimes add significant text descriptions and links to photos and videos to give contextual substance.
