Unless something shifts dramatically – and soon – humanity will overshoot global ambitions to hold temperature rise to 2°C this century.

In this special series, Future Forecast – Spotlight on the South-West, University of Melbourne journalism students take a deep dive into what this means on the ground – and in the ocean – for communities along Victoria’s south-west coast. This is part of an ongoing The Citizen Regional Reporting Project, with future editions focusing on other parts of the state. Several of the stories are co-published by ABC Regional.

Ben Silvester kicks off this special multi-media series Future Forecast in the city of Warrnambool.
