Mon 3 April 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Predicting the Effects of Climate Change by 2100 - When it comes to climate change, the question is no longer “is it happening?”, but “how quickly is our planet changing?” and “by how much will it change due to carbon emissions?” Many experts are convinced that we have already passed a tipping point, and climate change is now inevitable. It is from this perspective that we will discuss what life on earth might be like at the end of the century. Join experts in their fields including Prof Murray Roberts (University of Edinburgh) a marine biologist who is co-author of the UN 2014 report on the impacts of ocean acidification on marine biodiversity and the 5th IPCC climate change assessment; and Prof Dorrik Stow (Heriot-Watt University) a geologist with expertise in past climates to uncover the issues at hand, followed by followed by a question and answer session where debate will be encouraged.
This event is suitable for ages 14 + and begins at 7pm. Ticket Costs– £8.50 / £6.50 / ½ Price for Explorer Pass Holders
