Casual drinks and some fine pub food set the scene for the gathering. Fellows were joined by Dr Tas van Ommen, National Committee Chair, Earth System Science; Professor Ian Allison, the Science of Climate Change Q&A Co-chair; and Mr Rod Bender, General Manager Norske Skog Boyer mill.

Professor Holmes also spent time with Victorian Fellows at a celebratory Christmas dinner at the end of November. He plans to visit Fellows in other states and territories in 2016.
