Tony Abbott to Give Carter Commemorative Lecture

The Hon. Tony Abbott—the former PM and current MHR for Warringah in NSW—will speak on "Climate Change and Restraining Greenhouse Gas Emissions".  

This event will be the second of the Bob Carter Commemorative Lectures, which  AEF has established to commemorate the life and work of Professor Robert (Bob) Carter, a former AEF Director and its Scientific Adviser. The Bob Carter Memorial Fund is financing the Lecture series.

Mr Abbott's address will conclude with a question and answer session with the audience.

Dr Peter Ridd will move the vote of thanks. Peter was a former colleague of Bob Carter at James Cook University and was recently sacked for criticising his colleagues' research on climate change—something for which Bob Carter had previously been sanctioned.  

Light refreshments will be served before and after the formalities. During these times, attendees may purchase drinks from the bar.
