While it’s true that some people in the Pacific are choosing to, or are forced, to leave their homes and land because of climate change, others are staying, sez Dr Dalila Gharbaoui, a researcher at the University of Canterbury.   

Dr Gharbaoui’s research looks at understanding the whole picture and raising awareness on the impacts of climate change, as well as what we need to do for the future survival of our planet. 

Joe spoke with Dr Gharbaoui about her work, looking at the neglected category of people that are either “trapped” or not willing to move to adapt to climate change in the Pacific.

Parliament grounds have been cleared, and the grass will regrow, but the disinformation networks behind the protests remain. This is how disinformation researcher Byron Clark described the aftermath of March’s parliament occupation.

In a new journal article, Clark reflects on the media’s role in the occupation, from far-right networks such as Counterspin, to mainstream platforms such as Newsroom and Newstalk ZB, and urges journalists not to ignore disinformation networks, but to investigate them and analyse the role they are playing in our contemporary ‘post-truth’ world.
