Minimising Climate Risks

Wednesday 17 January 2018 - Wednesday 17 January 2018

Imperial College London


Climate change continues to divide opinion and confuse the lay person. Its 3 years since the last IPCC Assessment and 2 years since the global agreement in Paris to deal with climate change. Although some progress is being made to address climate change, the international process seems painfully slow and the US, the world’s second largest emitter, has indicated its intention to withdraw from the treaty. Meanwhile extreme weather has devastated communities around the world. Just how big is the threat of climate change? Is it all doom and gloom or are there reasons for optimism?

The Royal Meteorological Society’s meeting “Minimising climate change” will take stock of scientific progress since the last IPCC report, review options for avoiding dangerous climate change and what actions key countries are taking. The meeting should appeal to scientists, policymakers and interested non-experts.

Dr Carol Turley gave a presentation on Ocean Acidification at this key event.
