Avoid the Unmanageable, Manage the Unavoidable: What can we expect from the climate in the coming decades, and what might we do?

Seminar 2: Impacts of Climate Change

Speaker: Professor Charlie F Kennel

Venue: the Plumb Auditorium, Christ's College Cambridge

Date/Time: Thursday 23 January, 5:30pm - 7:00pm followed by drinks

Can we infer from today’s changes and climate models what tomorrow’s world might look like? Regional weather patterns, water availability, floods, drought, wildfires? Impacts on agriculture, ecology, human disease, regional technical systems?

This term, CSaP's inaugural Visiting Research Fellow Professor Charlie F Kennel will deliver a series of seminars on adaptation to climate change, hosted by Christ's College Cambridge.

Professor Kennel is Vice-Chancellor and Director emeritus at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego, and a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Christ’s College. He will be spending the next three months as a Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Science and Policy.
