Australian Professor Emeritus Will Stefan and his colleagues have researched the interaction between natural feedback climate systems.
The study titled Trajectories of the Earth System in the Anthropocene found that current global efforts to curb emissions are ‘unlikely’ to prevent civilisation-destroying runaway climate change, resulting in an irreversible ‘Hothouse Earth’.

The climate is changing/the coal is burning/the people are ignoring/the water is evaporating/then flooding/then evaporating/then flooding/then evaporating/the farmers are struggling/but the food is still on the table/in our country/not theirs/for a while longer/and then we will be refugees/begging Tasmania/surrounded by acid poisoned ocean/slowly starving with heat deaths/burning forests desertifying dust/storms splitting civility survival/bones buried and gone…/Now. Down on the ground/I hear a very gentle sound.
