We're going to have to adapt to climate change, but some of the options on the table could do more harm than good if they destroy the ecosystems that protect us.
We’re talking about a lot of seeds.

The concerns about genetically modified foods are well known. But when we look at population and climate projections, what happens if we don't use them to increase our food supply?
Lake Mead in Arizona – water supply is outstripping demand in the Southwest as the weather has gotten warmer and the population has grown.
The U.S. Southwest drifted into a drier state during the last 35 years due to fewer rain-producing weather patterns and hotter temperatures.
Organisations like the African Union must find a way to monitor countries' environmental commitments.
Africa has fewer resources than others when it comes to climate change adaptation. For this reason environmental agreements must be monitored by the likes of the AU.
Environmental activists demand a fair climate change deal outside the United Nations Climate Change conference in South Africa recently.
The 2016 State of the Nation Address provides President Zuma with the ideal opportunity to be statesman-like. That would require bold action of his part, something that he is unlikely to do.

Chief scientist Alan Finkel comments on cuts to climate jobs at CSIRO.
What people are told about their local climate and what they experience may differ. Education and collaboration can remedy this disconnect.
Climate scientists are finding a disconnect between communities and climate science: people simply don't trust the information they're receiving.
Countries such as Mauritania have contributed little to climate change, yet face the worst impacts such as crop failure.
The countries that have contributed the least to climate change will experience the worst of its effects.
Hurricane Sandy was a turning point on views about climate change, but the effect doesn’t trump political views.
Despite what some climate advocates think, extreme weather events do little to sway Americans' political views on climate change.
Larry Marshall is right that the question of global warming has been answered. But there are many more climate questions to answer.

CSIRO's climate scientists haven't "finished" just because climate change is real. Without their expertise, we could waste billions on drought or flood planning that's not backed by the latest science.
CSIRO still needs to focus on preventing the impact of climate change, such as drought, in Australia.
Any shift in the focus of climate change research at CSIRO should look at how to stop the problem and reduce its impact on Australia.
CSIRO has contributed to surprising discoveries in climate science. Pictured here is the research ship RV Investigator.

Former PM's business advisor Maurice Newman recently claimed that satellite temperature data tell a different story to data collected on the ground. He's right - but that's how it's meant to be.
Pencil pines are found nowhere else in the world, and are extremely sensitive to fire.
Bushfires are threatening Tasmania's World Heritage area and ancient plants, warning us of a possible future under climate change.
The Western Cape in South Africa has mapped out a plan to help farmers cope with expected climate change threats to agriculture.
South Africa's Western Cape is the first region in the country to put together a comprehensive plan to help farmers deal with changes in weather patterns brought on by climate change.
Some people just refuse to believe in climate change no matter what the science says.
No matter how much evidence scientists present in support of climate change there are those who refuse to believe it. They think it's all part of the consprarcy theory.
