In Australia, the national public broadcaster is simply known as the ABC. It can be seen on TV and heard on the radio across the huge continent. The publicly funded agency has a reputation for indepth 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, among others. They focus on people at the 'cutting edge' of a given situation to gain a good perspective on a topic. Climate change, has received particular attention since Australia is on the frontline of a warming world. Climate impacts to the Great Barrier Reef or to the nation's farms and cattle stations have been covered.

The ABC sent investigative reporter, Eric Campbell, on a worldwide journey to gain insight on new technologies in operation that address CO2 pollution. Campbell located examples that could be applied widely in what might represent an "all of the above" strategy for climate solutions known as, geoengineering. These projects range from pulling CO2 directly from the atmosphere to fertilizing the deep oceans with powdered iron to stimulate algal growth to pull CO2 from the air. Campbell's report on "climate hackers" offers examples at scales large and small.
