In Our Hands: Our climate future – talk with Q&A
Town Hall Council Chambers – 7-9pm
Monday 10th June

With the “climate crisis” repeatedly in the news over the past year, how serious is global warming? What happened to Earth’s climate recently, and what is to come? Why is Net Zero promoted as a solution to global warming? Is Net Zero possible, or even desirable? What can I do about all this?

Professor Christopher Merchant (University of Reading) will address these questions in his talk In Our Hands: Our Climate Future, followed by ample time for audience questions and answers. The talk will present the key science that makes climate change a formidable challenge, and will discuss how ingenuity and determination can meet the Net-Zero challenge. Highlighting optimistic examples of progress towards a sustainable climate, Prof. Merchant will explain the urgency of faster action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the important roles we each have in responding to climate change.
