Science and Climate Change in an Alternative Facts World

Science and Climate Change in an Alternative Facts World
-

A panel debate.

During British Science Week and Climate Week, it is an appropriate time to examine the role of science, and our understanding of climate change, in a world where alternative facts are seen by some to have the same currency as real facts. Leading UK Climate Change scientists will present short talks examining the importance of science and evidence for policy making, the role of science in understanding climate change, the Paris Agreement, and what might happen if the US withdraws from the Paris Agreement.
