Climate Change: A Defining Challenge for the 21st Century
Jun 14, 2018
THE SIR THOMAS GRESHAM ANNUAL LECTURE 2018
The scientific evidence for climate change will be examined, describing how simulations of the Earth's weather and climate are constructed and how these can be used to make assessments of what our climate and weather might be like in the coming decades.
Based on this scientific evidence it will be argued that climate change may well be one of the defining challenges of the twenty-first century, and that how we respond will determine our future prosperity, health and well-being and the sustainability of Earth's natural environment.
