Last quote by Will Steffen

The only way to protect coral reefs in Australia and around the world is to stop greenhouse gas emissions. Australia is the caretaker of the Great Barrier Reef and we are lagging well behind the rest of the developed world when it comes to doing our part to effectively combat climate change. Emissions are flatlining in China and declining in the United States and in other OECD countries. In comparison, Australia's emissions continue to grow. We've got to stop and then reverse this trend and we've got to do it now. There is no time to lose.feedback

Will Steffen has been quoted 6 times. The one recent article where Will Steffen has been quoted is Humans are changing climate 170 times faster than nature, say researchers. Most recently, Will Steffen was quoted as having said, “Over the past 7,000 years the primary forces driving change have been astronomical - changes in solar intensity and subtle changes in orbital parameters, along with a few volcanoes. Human-caused greenhouse gas emissions over the past 45 years have increased the rate of temperature rise to 1.7 degrees Celsius per century, dwarfing the natural background rate. We are not saying the astronomical forces of our solar system or geological processes have disappeared, but in terms of their impact in such a short period of time they are now negligible compared with our own influence.”.
