Tim Flannery

Timothy Flannery is an Australian mammalogist, palaeontologist, environmentalist and global warming activist. He is the Chief Commissioner of the Australian Climate Commission, an independent body providing information on climate change to the Australian public. He is also the chairman of the Copenhagen Climate Council, an international climate change awareness group.

Flannery holds the Chair in Environmental Sustainability at Macquarie University. Flannery was awarded humanist of the year in 2005 for his outstanding work in zoology, and in 2007 was named Australian of the Year. In 2009, Flannery joined the project "Soldiers of Peace", a move against all wars and for a global peace.

Flannery's early research concerned the evolution of mammals in Australasia. As part of his doctoral studies, he described 29 new kangaroo species including 11 new genera and three new subfamilies. In 1980, Flannery discovered dinosaur fossils on the southern coast of Victoria and in 1985 had a role in the ground-breaking discovery of Cretaceous mammal fossils in Australia. This latter find extended the Australian mammal fossil record back 80 million years.
