The Great Barrier Reef is dying and extreme weather is becoming all too familiar. Yet when it comes to action on climate change, division and paralysis rule our land.

In this vivid, urgent essay, Anna Krien explores the psychology and politics of a warming world. She visits the frontlines of Australia’s climate wars – the Great Barrier Reef and the Galilee and Bowen basins in South Australia. She investigates the Adani mine, with its toxic politics and controversial economics. Talking to power workers and scientists, lobbyists and activists, she considers where climate change is taking us and where effective action is to be found.

“This was Turnbull’s moment, and the Liberal Party’s too. Not just the Snowy 2.0, but the whole thing – an ailing and dysfunctional grid, a complex issue, something for the ‘adults’ to take responsibility for. But instead of leadership, Australians got 'politics as usual'. Cheap shots, culture-war baiting, bad and good ideas lobbed like hot potatoes and lost in the trash talk of low-grade politics. After a 10-day policy spree, Turnbull resumed his poker face, continuing with his grim role of negotiating with the vipers in his nest.” - Anna Krien in The Long Goodbye
