Climate right for future talks at UWS
Members of the community are invited to come along and meet Professor Will Steffen at the University of Western Sydney Campbelltown Campus on Friday 7 March.
To celebrate UWS 25th Anniversary, we will be hosting a public lecture with Climate Council Australia Councillor Will Steffen on 'Climate Change – 2014'.
The presentation will give a comprehensive overview of the science of climate change, with a strong focus on the risks of a changing climate for southeast Australia, including the western Sydney region. The talk will begin with the basics of climate science – the observations that show the ways in which the climate is changing and the science explaining the human influences on climate.
Much of the talk will focus on the risks that a rapidly destabilising climate presents. Which include heatwaves and hot weather, high bushfire danger weather, and changes in the patterns of rainfall – both heavy rainfall events that can lead to flooding as well as long dry periods.
Professor Steffen will conclude the lecture with a science-based summary of what Australia and other countries around the world need to do to stabilise the climate system and prevent even higher risk for our children and grandchildren.
When: Friday, 7th March
Time: 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Refreshments from 5:00pm-5:45pm, with the lecture commencing at 6:00pm-7:00pm
