CLIMATE CHANGE LECTURE

Tackling Climate Change: rhetoric or reality?

Lord John Krebs

The EPA, as part of the National Dialogue on Climate Action and in conjunction with the Royal Irish Academy, will host a public lecture on adapting to climate change.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and adapting to the impacts of inevitable climate change, are arguably the biggest global challenges we face today. An international consensus on action was reached in Paris in 2015 with many countries introducing national laws to tackle climate change. The UK’s 2008 Climate Change Act was a pioneering commitment to set a legally binding target for reducing national emissions. In this 10th anniversary year of the Act, how is the UK doing? Is there a gap between action and the target? How will Brexit affect progress in the future?

Lord John Krebs

Lord John Krebs served as Chairman of the House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee from 2010 - 2014 and was the founding Chair of the UK Climate Change Committee Adaptation Sub-Committee 2009 – 2017, and remains a member of the Committee.
