The urgency around climate change, and the drive to stop the warming as soon as possible, has become much more visible recently. This talk will survey the science of what’s happening and what we have to do to meet the Paris Agreement goals. It will also touch on some of the public health issues associated with a changing climate.
Professor James Renwick has 40 years’ experience in weather and climate research, especially large-scale climate variability and climate change, including impacts on New Zealand and the Antarctic. He has been a Lead Author for several rounds of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment Reports and is actively involved in communication activities.
