Climate Change Seminar

Continuing its practice of recent years, the Science and Technology Committee has arranged an afternoon seminar on Wednesday 16th June starting at 2 pm. The topic this year is Climate Change. It will be an online meeting and will have the format of previous years, with two short presentations followed by questions and contributions from the audience.

Dr Brian Tyler has prepared a discussion paper entitled, Climate change 2020 – looking back and looking forward summarising the present position, recent changes and UK plans. This paper will be circulated in advance of the meeting and Brian will speak to it. Dr Clair Gough, Senior Research Fellow at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, will then give a presentation on greenhouse gas removal (GGR) – which is an essential part of most plans for limiting the global temperature rise. Clair has carried out work for the UK Climate Change Committee (CCC) including as co-chair of a GGR Policy Options Roundtable discussion.

Participation will be through the BlueJeans Meetings App. Unlike the BlueJeans Events software, which is used for our lectures, BlueJeans Meetings allows all participants to be seen and heard and so everyone will have the opportunity to take part in the discussions. For this reason, the number of registrants will be limited and will be allocated on a first-come basis. Registrants will be given advice on how to download and use the link to the BlueJeans Meetings software and will be sent more information about the seminar itself.

Please note: This is a member's only event. We offer discounted membership rates to new members so if you want to guarantee your place at any of our events, we recommend that you join the society and book as a member.

To register for the seminar please contact admin@manlitphil.ac.uk and we will send you a personal invitation with further information.
