This event has unfortunately been cancelled

Climate change is beginning to bite. The drumbeat of floods, fires and storms is ever louder. Yet the scale and pace of global collective action is falling far short of needs. Climate change dismissal persists, and in some quarters has even strengthened.

Join Chris Rapley as he discusses the difficulties to connect facts and action, whether we have reached a limit of the human brain to cope with the world we have created as well as considering the consequences of climate change and potential futures.

Speaker:
Professor Chris Rapley, Professor of Climate Science, University College London

Chair:
Professor David Livingstone FBA, Professor of Geography and Intellectual History, Queen’s University Belfast

An event at Queen's University Belfast hosted in partnership with the British Academy as part of Imagine! Belfast’s festival of ideas and politics, 23-29 March
