Climate Australia host Lee Constable is joined by the chief investigators in the Drought team of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes – Prof Nerilie Abram, Prof Jason Evans and Dr Andrea Taschetto. Along the way, Lee discovers why drought is such a tricky topic to explore for climate scientists and why understanding how droughts may change in the future is one of the wicked problems of climate change.

Prof Julie Arblaster, Prof Lisa Alexander, and Assoc Prof Gab Abramowitz discuss the research around the Attribution and Risk research program. The episode explores why we can detect climate signals in some extreme weather events and not others and the implications this has for understanding how these events may change.
Lee Constable interviews Prof Christian Jakob about what we don't know about climate change for her channel on the Cimpatico Studios platform, Climate Australia.
The past four months have seen a lot of activity with the release of Weathex 2.0, a short video Q&ARC introducing some of our researchers, two combined Centre of Excellence media workshops, and a pilot interview program featuring Christian Jakob that explored the challenges of climate science.
Between bushfires, droughts and new research, CLEX had a strong few months before COVID-19 saw Australia's coverage of climate issues drop by 61%. We have also found a great new video app perfect for workshops and added an outstanding blog pos to our website.
