CVHF2021 talks by Jonathon Porritt

CLIMATE CHANGE: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

Climate change is undoubtedly the defining issue of our generation. In this timely discussion with Andrew Gilmour, science historian Sarah Dry will talk about the scientists who unravelled the mysteries of our seas, glaciers and atmosphere, and thereby revealed the dynamics of Earth’s planetary systems and humanity’s growing impact on them. While Jonathon Porritt, writer, broadcaster and environmental protection campaigner, will confront the massive challenge ahead of us with a degree of optimism due to new technology, the power of innovation and the mobilisation of young people in the cause of sustainability in order to secure a safer world.
