The Challenge of Climate Change

Is there a scientific basis for concern over human induced climate change?
This free public lecture, to be given by Sir Brian Hoskins, will explore this topic.

This lecture will explore this topic and consider the relative merits of adaptation, geo-engineering and mitigation responses. In the context of mitigation, the UK greenhouse gas emission targets and the basis for the advice of the Climate Change Committee will be discussed. Throughout the talk, the challenge posed by climate change to science,
technology, business and society in general will be highlighted.
Professor Sir Brian Hoskins is a dynamical meteorologist and climatologist based at Imperial College London. He is perhaps best known for his work in the field of cyclones. He has also produced research across many areas of meteorology, including the Indian monsoon and global warming, recently contributing to the Stern review and the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report.
