Ten things you didn’t know about climate change …
Professor Tim Naish and Professor James Renwick, Victoria University of Wellington
RSNZ Manawatu Branch July 2016 meeting
7.30 pm Thursday, 7 July, Palmerston North Public Library, George Street, Palmerston North
Climate change is already redefining coastlines and the weather, both here in New Zealand and around the world. But will it affect me and what can I do about it? Tim Naish and James Renwick will give their take on this biggest of issues – from the very local to the global.
Professor Tim Naish is Director of the Antarctic Research Centre at Victoria University of Wellington, where he and his team use rock and ice cores to look at how the Antarctica ice sheets affected global sea-levels in past warmer periods and what this means for our future.
Professor James Renwick is a Professor of Physical Geography at Victoria University of Wellington where he indulges his fascination for all aspects of the climate system, from the tropics to the poles, and from thousands of years in the past to hundreds of years into the future.
All warmly welcome
