Australia's national public broadcaster, the ABC can be seen and heard on TV and radio across that huge continent. The media group has a reputation for in-depth coverage of politics, the arts, scientific achievements, and coverage of environmental issues. For nearly 30 years, The ABC has produced a series of half-hour reports on various topics for the Australian public. Their reporters have visited countries around the world covering wars, natural disasters, new technology, and others. They focus on people at the 'cutting edge' of an issue to gain a good perspective. Climate change, has received particular attention since Australia is on the frontline of a warming world. Climate impacts to the Great Barrier Reef, the nation's farms and cattle stations, and the recent bushfires have been widely covered.

Their investigative reporter, Eric Campbell, made a worldwide journey to explore new technologies that address CO2 pollution. Campbell located examples that could be applied widely in what might represent an "all of the above" approach for climate solutions known as geoengineering. The projects range from pulling CO2 directly from the atmosphere to fertilizing the deep oceans with powdered iron to stimulate algae. Campbell's report on "climate hackers" offers examples at scales large and small.
