Hotting Up: Meeting the Challenges of Climate Change: Prof Carolyn Roberts (November 2016)


Published on Dec 22, 2016

Human-induced climate change has been identified by scientists and politicians as the greatest threat encountered by humanity. http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and…

Deserts, oceans, forests, icecaps, shorelines and reefs all seem threatened, with catastrophic consequences for human life. The lecture will investigate the latest evidence about what is happening to the global climate, speculate on the environment that our children could face in 2100, and discuss some strategies that might be used to make a difference.

The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and…

Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 1,900 lectures free to access or download from the website.
