Reflections on COP26 from head of the UK’s Climate Change Committee
Climate Change Science
The Climate Change Committee’s Annual Report to Parliament calls for immediate and systemic change if we are to build a green recovery post Covid. With guests Baroness Brown of Cambridge and Dr James MacGregor.
Join us as we talk to climate science expert Professor Martin Siegert about his work to investigate what conditions were like on earth during the Pliocene era (5.3 to 2.6 million years ago) – the last time atmospheric carbon emissions were around 400ppm for a prolonged period. We explore what conditions then can tell us about what we might encounter if we don’t reduce our current levels of carbon.
Join Amanda and Jim for this special Covid 19-free podcast as they step their way from A to Z and guide you through some useful climate change and environment terms. Essential listening to prep for those Houseparty quizzes or help out with home schooling assignments. We hope all our listeners are staying safe and well and wish everyone good health. Happy listening!
