Climate change, evolution, deniers and anti science

About

Geoff Levermore Emeritus Professor University of Manchester will begin by looking at the evidence for climate change and global warming and highlight the evidence of mankind’s fossil fuel emissions into the atmosphere. Influential climate deniers will be discussed, and the role of the IPCC will be considered. As the built environment is responsible for almost a third of greenhouse gas emissions, the potential for reducing them will be explored, as well as the unexpected consequences of saving energy, namely flammable insulation and summer overheating of dwellings. 
The talk will conclude by suggesting that the profile of science, engineering and their benefits be raised to combat climate denial and political ignorance.
