“From climate science to climate policies”
Professor Piers Forster, Director, Priestley International Centre for Climate, University of Leeds

This talk will look at how climate science has developed over recent decades in terms of understanding the various causes of climate change and the role humans play, as well as knowledge of the future climates we might expect. It will discuss the synthesis of this knowledge through the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Reports and how recent science developments helped frame the United Nations international negotiations at the Glasgow Climate Summit.
