Issue #635

Dr Karl

Is it possible to save the planet? Dr Karl Kruszelnicki says yes!
In this edition, everyone’s favourite scientist reveals it’s not too late to stop – and even reverse – climate change. He tells us just what needs to be done to reduce our carbon footprints and return greenhouse gas levels to what they were in the mid- to late-20th century.

“Change is always a little messy,” Dr Karl writes. “But the current and future dangers and costs from climate change are truly horrendous.
We have to change.”
