I had the very good fortune to have coffee with David once: the man knows his stuff, and his talk will be worth seeing:
Co-author of the ground breaking Climate Code Red, David Spratt, will present the latest climate science and its links to increasing extreme weather events worldwide. Australia has experienced record high temperatures, heatwaves and bushfires already this year with the Bureau of Meteorology adding two new colours to its weather forecasting chart to take the highest temperature up from 50 to 54 degrees.
2012 climate science observations saw a record summer Arctic sea ice melt, record Greenland ice sheet melt, record permafrost warming, as well as increasing floods, cyclones, droughts and heatwaves. With climate scientists predicting more extreme events, David also shows what we can expect at the 2 and 4 degree warming scenarios.
David is also an experienced activist and will talk about the urgent action we can take to tackle the climate emergency.
