|Robert Manne - using his voice to help|
people better understand climate change.
A leading public intellectual, he thought at first he’d rather die than spend his life unable to speak.
But now he’s back in the public domain - and still has plenty to say.
And speaking up he certainly is - Professor Manne has declared that his task from now is to do all he can to help Australian’s understand the realities of climate change.
Robert Manne is an Emeritus Professor of politics and Vice-Chancellor's Fellow at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia and is considered by many as leading Australian public intellectual.
He was interviewed on the ABC’s “One Plus One” program by Jane Hutcheon.
