On Friday 20 September Professor Ian Candy treated us to “The story of Global Warming from a scientist’s perspective”.
Climate change is a hot topic, with the Extinction Rebellion protests, the government’s 2050 Zero Emission law, Greta Thunberg’s school strikes and David Attenborough’s Blue Planet.
Ian has worked all over the world studying the causes and impact of climate change. In particular, he has focused on the periods of global warming in the past and the role of climate change in human evolution, dispersal and occupation. Ian will be outlining why climates vary and how the magniude of change we are experiencing is a truly unique crisis that will radically change our future.
Locally, Surrey has just launched the Surrey Climate Comission.
