Breakthrough, the National Centre for Climate Restoration, based in Melbourne, has launched a special series of discussion papers to explore the science, politics, economics and social change dimensions for climate restoration.
On 31 August 2016, Breakthrough published Paul Gilding’s discussion paper ‘War – What Is It Good For? – WWII Economic Mobilisation: An Analogy for Climate Action’
