The climate crisis is filling up the bathtub, again/still!

The climate crisis is filling up the bathtub, again/still!

Dr Oksana Tarasova (pictured) mentally transported me back about a decade today when she was interviewed by Julian Morrow on Radio National's Sunday Extra, and she used the image of a bathtub to illustrate how carbon dioxide continues to worsen Earth's climate crisis.

The Melbourne-based Professor David Karoly spoke in Shepparton about a decade ago and used a similar word-picture to help the crowd of more than 70 better understand how greenhouse gases were accumulating in Earth's atmosphere and the other available sinks.

Dr Tarasova talked with Julian Morrow about the World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) Greenhouse Gas Bulletin.
