Indigenous Australians face “disproportionate” harm from climate change, according to a leaked report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. 

 

The second IPCC report, which is due to be released next March, also warns that climate change could swamp $226bn worth of coastal property via sea-level rises and cause the number of heatwave-related deaths in Sydney to triple by the end of the century".

Centre for Climate Safety's curator insight, October 15, 2013 2:33 AM

“Heatwave-related deaths in Sydney could triple by end of the century".

Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 28, 2013 6:35 PM

This resource could be used for teaching both ideas about climate change as well as Indigenous Australian culture. It tells us of how by 2100 Aborignal Australians will be at a significant risk of death and illness due to heatwaves and extreme weather events. I'd most likely use this resource in my classroom when teaching of environmental issues, but I could also link it to Indigenous culture through asking questions like "Why do you think Aboriginal Australians might be at a greater risk than other Australians?" Even this basic question gets students thinking about differences between cultures and how people lead different lifestyles.
