Climate Kids

Explaining climate for the kids who will live our positive climate future

The climate crisis is complicated and our kids have questions! Luckily, our UniMelb experts are here to answer them in this series from MCF.

How did climate change start?

In episode one, Elsie, Zoe and Hanna want to get to the bottom of how all this climate change business started! Dr Lily and Dr Linden do a bit of time travel to explain just how carbon was captured millions of years ago, and why it's getting out into our atmosphere now. Plus, stick around to the end for tips on how you can help slow global warming!

Special thanks to our experts, Professor David Karoly, Professor Ary Hoffman, and Dr Linden Ashcroft.
