Friday 15 November 2019, 6.30pm - 9.30pm Beaufort Manor, 111 High Street, Yea
Prof David Karoly, NESP Earth Systems and Climate Change Hub, CSIRO, will examine the science underpinning climate change, and how the observed climate globally, in Australia and in the region around Yea has changed over the last 100 years.
"The recent Schools Strike 4 Climate and the UN Climate Action Summit in September clearly demonstrate the concerns held by many people about climate change and their future. Countries around the world have agreed to limit global warming to well below 2C above pre-industrial levels, by reducing human activities that have increased greenhouse gas emissions. I will describe two paths for the future: one in which all countries meet their commitments and global warming is limited. On the other path, countries continue with increasing greenhouse gas emissions, global warming continues and there are many adverse impacts on people, on ecosystems and on businesses around the world. Which path we follow into the future depends on choices that we and others make now, and the approaches that we use to adapt to climate change impacts now and in the future".
