Share Climate Change by Paul Hardaker, CEO of the Institute of Physics

Event Details

The Derby Centre to for the Institute of Physics (IoP) is proud to welcome Paul Hardaker, the CEO of the IoP who will be giving a talk on climate change.

The climate is undoubtedly changing, we can measure that, and some well-established physics tells us what we might expect the scale of that change to be. But the complicated nature of our climate system means that complex models are needed to help make predictions that can be used to inform policy makers.

Paul’s talk will lay out the evidence we have to date on what is causing the changes we can observe, the challenges in using models to predict future climate, and the uncertainty of these predictions. Paul will also talk about the challenges of communicating the science to both the public and policy-makers, and the implications of what the climate models are telling us for both public policy and investment in our infrastructure.

Prior to being appointed to his current post at the IOP, Professor Hardaker was Chief Executive of the Royal Meteorological Society from October 2006 to August 2012. Before that, he worked at the Met Office for 14 years as both Programme Director for the Met Office’s Development Programmes, and as the Met Office’s Chief Advisor to Government.

Rereshments will be served from 18:30 with the talk starting at 19:00.
