In February 2015, the Australian Academy of Science published a report, "The Science of Climate Change".

Scientia Professor Trevor McDougall was a member of the committee overseeing the document. UNSW's Matthew England, from the CCRC (and formerly from the School), also worked on the report.

The 44-page document canvasses topics such as human impact on climate, sea level change, extreme events, and scientific opinion on addressing climate change.

This report is an update on a similar 2010 document, which was downloaded almost a million times.
