An appeal to All Governments to take action on Climate Change!

By way of an introduction please take a look at this  short video which shows how methane is stored in the permafrost and in frozen lakes:

2010: University of Alaska Fairbanks Professor Katey Walter Anthony takes us onto a frozen lake in Fairbanks, AK to demonstrate why methane gas is a key ingredient in global warming.

The continuing climate change protests , the Greta Thunberg appeals and Sir David Attenborough’s dire warnings in his TV programme Climate Change – The Facts may not be top news now but climate change is the biggest issue facing the future of life on Earth. I implore everyone to watch it. …… Click here for the full 58 minute BBC iPlayer recording of the programme  If you don’t have time to view the whole programme the TV guide Radio Times has a great summary including some dramatic video clips.  Or follow Twitter: #ClimateChangeTheFacts

For my part, the climate change threat is so important to us here on Earth I have tried to repeat  some of the key warning and advice from scientists and university researchers filmed in the BBC programme in this article …………

Climate Change: Catastrophe or Hoax? Lewes: Friday 24th Nov

We are delighted to invite you to the first in our new series of open speaker events on November 24th – ‘Climate Change: Catastrophe or Hoax?’ with Professor Tim Palmer, one of the world’s leading climate scientists.

At a time when devastating storms are increasing around the world, while key governments seem to be stepping back from their commitments to reduce emissions of damaging greenhouse gases, we ask you to join us to debate the real science on climate change. While in power, the Liberal Democrats were able to introduce landmark policies to encourage renewable energy for a full transition to a low carbon economy but many of these policies are now being dismantled by the Conservative government. How can we define what the underlying science tells us? And how can we share these facts in an engaging way?

Professor Palmer is The Royal Society Research Professor of Climate Physics, University of Oxford. He will explore the science of climate change and will share the latest thinking on how to measure and predict our changing atmosphere. He has spent most of his career working on the dynamics and predictability of weather and climate. Amongst various research achievements, he pioneered the development of forecasting techniques for weather and climate prediction (at the Met Office and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts). These techniques are now standard in operational weather and climate prediction around the world.

Join us for a rare opportunity to hear from a leading thinker in this critical area of debate!
