Room L141, Faculty of Arts Building, Newnham CampusSummary:
Al Gore’s presentation about the impacts of climate change and the solutions to tackle this threat.
- Carmen Primo
The climate crisis is the defining challenge of our generation. Scientists are clear about the reality of climate change and we should be too. And with devastating storms, dangerous floods, melting glaciers, and rising seas becoming increasingly regular facts of life, it’s more critical than ever that we face reality and get working on solutions together. Former US Vice President Al Gore’s famous presentation answers three questions that will determine the future of our planet, and explains why there is good reason to be optimistic: Should we change? Can we change? Will be change? The presentation will address the science and causes of climate change, its terrifying impacts in Australia and around the world, and the solutions that already exist to tackle this threat.
