Global Warming-Where Do We Go From Here?

Radical suggestions and solutions on how to respond to the threat of global warming.


Global warming is considered to be a key threat to the modern world, though our response to it continues to be a source of great debate. From efforts to persuade nations to curb greenhouse gases to a greater emphasis on environmental concerns, there are plenty of solutions and suggestions to respond to the global warming threat.

Join Professor Stephen Law, with some of the UK’s leading experts and campaigners, to look at a selection of radical suggestions and solutions on how to respond to the global warming threat.
