I just saw this on EventBrite: a free public lecture this Wednesday evening by Dame Prof. Julia Slingo FRS, former Chief Scientist at the UKMO, part of the EPA's Climate Change lecture series. More details here.

After decades of denial, the global community has now accepted the reality of human-induced climate change and the imperative of tackling it. So is the climate science done, and all we need now are technological solutions? In this talk I will argue that the role for climate science is greater than ever before, as we face the challenges of how to mitigate global warming, how to adapt to a changing climate, and how to make ourselves more resilient to weather and climate hazards.
