The Climate Commission is in town

They are hosting a community meeting at RMIT Storey Hall tomorrow evening at 6.30 pm. The invitation to the meeting features a great picture of the Sandridge railway bridge. As you can see, the bridge went like an arrow towards Flinders St Station. From 1854 to 1987, the  bridge enabled trains to go directly from Port to Flinders St. The 'doggies', in service to the 1970s, took just 7 minutes to get from Port Melbourne to Flinders St.
The Climate Commission, chaired by Professor Tim Flannery, was established by the government to provide all Australians with an independent and reliable source of information about:
  • the science of climate change
  • the international action being taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and
  • the economics of a carbon price
The Commission's report 'Victorian climate impacts and opportunities' is available from their website.
