    This week, and for the first time, the Cape Grim monitoring station in NW Tasmania recorded atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations in excess of 400 parts per million. Cape Grim is the only monitoring station for CO2 in the southern hemisphere, and samples from some of the cleanest air on the planet. This marks yet another step on the climate change journey.

    Meanwhile at NCCARF, in CoastExchange we are running another competition. We’re looking for simple adaptation options that people can implement right now. And for your ideas you can win a $50 voucher and a new book from Tim Jarvis - the Antarctic explorer who will give the closing plenary at the NCCARF CSIRO Climate Adaptation Conference in July.
    (The conference program is close to finalised and the final program will be launched on Monday 23 May.)
