Climate Change – Adaption, Mitigation & Geo Engineering
In this Webinar Simon Nicholson an Assistant Professor in the
School of International Service Contact is interviewed by us about climate change and whether we will be able to meet the target set by the International Panel on Climate Change to reduce carbon emissions sufficiently to keep temperature rise below 1.5 degrees by the end of the century.
We know climate change is happening and we will have to adapt but are the measures to mitigate climate change and its impact enough or do we need more drastic measures like geo engineering. And if we do, how safe is that and what are the unintended consequences.
We also discuss how scientists communicate their concerns to both politicians and the general public so that the issues are understood clearly.
