Ward off Climate Change

About the author


Gary Warden was raised in the Perth Hills. After graduating from the University of Western Australia with a degree in Geology, Gary joined BHP Billiton where he spent 18 years working in a variety of roles in a number of locations around the world. Prior to leaving BHP Billiton in December 2006, Gary was Global Manager for the company's US$1Billion business improvement program.

While he was originally sceptical about the claims relating to climate change, he became convinced of the urgency of the issue in early 2006. He left BHP Billiton primarily to spend more time with his young family, but also to dedicate himself to creating a more sustainable life for himself and his family and to support others in making that change.

In September 2007 he was trained by Al Gore and has delivered the "Inconvenient Truth" lectures to thousands of west australians since then. In November 2007 Gary ran for the senate in the Federal Election representing the Climate Change Coalition.

In addition to his climate change lectures, he has facilitated Living Smart workshops across Perth. Between 2008 and 2009 he was on the Executive Committee of the Conservation Council of Western Australia including one year as Vice President.

Gary co-founded and is Executive Director of the very exciting Days of Change program, one of the largest sustainability programs in Australia and is now General Manager WA for Eco-Kinetics, one of the largest Solar PV companies in Australia and subsidiary of ASX-listed CBD Energy.

Climate Change Sceptics Ramp Up Misinformation Campaign

by Gary 8/25/2008 9:07:00 PM

There has been a noticeable increase in the number of stories from so-called climate change skeptics in the media in recent weeks.

Last Sunday, 60 Minutes ran a story featuring David Evans, a climate change sceptic, claiming that there were thousands of scientists who are skeptical about the link between climate change and human activity.

What the story failed to mention is that, virtually without exception, these scientists do not include current, practicing climate change scientists.

In an article on the ABC website, Professor David Karoly, IPCC contributing author and advisor to Victorian Premier John Brumby, made the point that, while there has been an increase in the number of opinion pieces in the media from climate change skeptics, there has been no corresponding increase in peer-reviewed scientific papers questioning the linkage between climate change and human activities.

On the contrary the overwhelming majority of papers strengthen the conclusion that humanity is primarily responsible for climate change.
