This is one of the most beautiful infographics I've seen for a long time! Tree-rings inspired to show the source of US #immigrants since 1790.

The #IPCC Report pulls no punches: the planet is commited to #climatechange and we only have 12 years to slash fossil fuel use if we are to moderate global warming.

Urgent action now the international call. +UNSW Sydney @cabahCoE

Science communication is more important than ever in today's society. Last week I co-led a week-long Irinjili #Writing Masterclass for the ARC Centre of Excellence in Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (@cabahCoE). We had a wonderful group of participants who worked incredibly hard and also shared their own hard-won experiences. Thanks to everyone for embracing the workshop in such a positive and open spirit. It was a fabulously productive week. #education #training @ACAD_Adelaide @UNSWScience @arc_gov_au
