Event Details

We are currently living through an international climate disaster. What future awaits us? What can be done to stop this catastrophe? This is your chance to ask a panel of climate scientists and experts, chaired by the Observer’s Lucy Siegle, the important questions about the environmental state of the planet.

The global climate emergency is real and growing. Australia has seen devastating bushfires that have swept across a land area of nearly 11 million hectares (England's land area is 13 million). At least 23 people and millions of animals have been killed - and scientists are now warning that unless we act now to reduce the Earth's temperature, fires such as these will become commonplace.

Meanwhile, the UK is far from safe from the effects of global heating; from the Saddleworth Moor fire to lethal flooding and increasingly regular storms, we are seeing milder winters and scorching summers. The environment has become a key chip to play in party politics - but how much change will we realistically see in the next decade? Do we all have a hand in the outcome, or is this the result of the actions of the 1%? If we fail to meet targets set by the Paris Accord, what does the future hold?

We’re giving you the chance to put your questions to the experts.

The panel:

- Richard Allan, professor of climate science at University of Reading

- Marion Dumas, assistant professor, Grantham Research Institute for Climate and the Environment, London School of Economics

- Dr Emily Grossman, science author and co-founder of Scientists for XR

- Caroline Hickman, psychotherapist, University of Bath and Climate Psychology Alliance

- Dr Emily Shuckburgh, director of Cambridge Zero at the University of Cambridge and reader in Environmental Data Science
