Tipping Points

In this third episode we discuss climate risk tipping points – those moments when a small change or changes become so significant they cause a much larger and often irreversible shift. Have we reached such a point with climate change? The most recent IPCC report appears to suggest that we are now on such an irrevocable path. We are joined by climate scientist Dr Eric Mackie from the University of Cambridge and Dr Luke Kemp, a research associate at the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at the University of Cambridge.

Anxiety Vs Apathy – getting the balance right in communicating climate risk

In this second episode of our Climate Risk series researcher and writer Freya Roberts from UCL’s Climate Action Unit and Professor Liz Bentley, Chief Executive of the Royal Meteorological Society, discuss the need to get the right message across to all sectors of society around risk. What lessons have we learnt from Covid and is there a right or wrong way to sharing information?

Climate Risk 2022: What you should know

Welcome to the new series of The Climate Papers podcasts – Climate Risk – produced in conjunction with the UK Universities Climate Network. We talk with experts Alyssa Gilbert from Imperial College London, Emily Shuckburgh from Cambridge Zero, Kris De Meyer from King’s College London and Craig Hutton from the University of Southampton to get an insight and introduction to climate risk and why it is so important to understand, quantify and mitigate it as far as possible.


In this final episode of The Climate Papers Series 1 we focus upon the co-benefits* associated with climate change mitigation and adaptation policy and action. We are joined by Professor Sebastien Chastin, Professor of Health Behaviour Dynamics: People, Places, Systems at Glasgow Caledonian University and Professor Laura Diaz-Anadon who holds the chaired Professorship of Climate Change Policy at the University of Cambridge.

Counting the Cost of Climate Finance

Join our experts Dr Jessica Omukuti (University of York) and Dr Harald Heubaum (SOAS University of London) as they discuss the financing and investments that will support a global transition to net zero. How and where is the money being raised and spent? How do we account for loss and damage? What more can be done to support least developed countries and small island developing states?
