We are now over two years since the historic climate agreement in Paris which agreed to limit global temperatures to below 2 degrees. And yet in 2016 we saw the highest temperatures globally since records began. We’ve also seem many consequences of these high temperatures, such as wild fires in Europe and California and record low Arctic sea ice.
There are, however, some encouraging signs; in the last two years our emissions of carbon dioxide have stopped rising and technological advances in renewable energies and storage are increasing apace. But is it enough to prevent dangerous climate change?
Join us to hear Professor Richard Harding, Director of Biogeochemistry at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, presenting some of the most recent climate science and discussing where we need to go in the future.
7pm for 7.30pm start. Refreshments available.
