The old link will not work for this rescheduled date.
We will have the replay of the video available for 72 hours after the event for those of you that can’t make the new date. It will also be uploaded to YouTube in the future.
In this talk, Vicky Pope describes what goes into a cutting-edge climate model, how it is used to provide information on how and why the climate is changing and how it might change in the future.
She will explore the complete cost of solutions to the problems we face. Climate change is a challenge for society – scientists, engineers and policymakers can help if they work together.
DONATIONS TO THE ROYAL INSTITUTION
These online events are free for everyone to access. However, donations are an extremely important source of support for us and we would be most grateful if you are able to contribute. We are a small, independent charity and receive no government funding. Our income from ticket sales and venue hire has been significantly reduced and will continue to fall. Donations, alongside our membership subscriptions are vital to our development and survival.
Please donate via our JustGiving page. Every donation we receive makes a difference. Thank you for your support.
