UTS 4 Climate | Sunlight and Seaweed: Bob Carr in conversation with Professor Tim Flannery

Climactic thanks the Impact Studios team for allowing us to share this five-part series with you.


There is an unlikely hero that could help deliver us from climate catastrophe, and that hero is found washed up on our beaches and lives deep in our oceans.

In this final UTS 4 Climate conversation, Professor Bob Carr sits down with Australia’s best-known climate author and scientist, Professor Tim Flannery to discuss the innovative ways we could draw down the carbon that exists in our atmosphere, and the urgent need to begin this work.


UTS 4 Climate is a five-part podcast series bringing together leading thinkers from politics, economics, science and journalism to continue the conversation on climate change.

This audio series creates a space to explore climate change from all angles and find practical answers to what we can do to address the climate crisis and secure our futures.

The series is hosted by marine science student Erika Wagner, who works at the Institute for Sustainable Futures. Erika introduces listeners to a range of fascinating conversations held in 2020 by Professor the Honourable Bob Carr, NSW’s longest-serving Premier, former Foreign Minister of Australia and UTS Industry Professor of Climate and Business.

Hear from a diverse range of guests on where Australia has gone wrong on our approach to climate, opportunities to reduce carbon emissions, how to talk about climate in a way that makes a difference, and what it will take to achieve a sustainable future.

This podcast was made by Impact Studios at UTS in collaboration with the Institute for Sustainable Futures.
