David Karoly is giving a free talk on climate change in Sydney on 11 October. Details:
Climate change: Do you want the good news or the bad news?
Professor David Karoly will separate the truth from the spin on climate change, telling it how it is.
There are fascinating good-news stories about real world solutions that have already been implemented, globally, in Australia and in other countries.
But how far do we have to go to avoid dangerous climate change? What is Australia’s fair contribution to a global response on climate change? How bad might climate change get if we decide to continue with business as usual?
Professor David Karoly is Professor of Meteorology and Federation Fellow of the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne. He is active in research in climate change science, particularly on detection and attribution of climate change. He was a lead author of the chapter “Assessment of observed changes and responses in natural and managed systems” in the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report “Climate Change 2007: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability” and a member of the core writing team for the IPCC AR4 Synthesis Report.
Monday 11 October at 6.30pm, at Wharf 1, Pier 4/5, Hickson Road, Walsh Bay.
