Meetup BAS CAFE SCI - "CLIMATE CHANGE" Headline
19:30 to 21:00
The Tea bar, 19 London Street, Basingstoke RG21 7NT
Postcode/Map Ref:     RG21 7NT

Basingstoke Cafe Sci would like to extend an invitation to our followers to attend this free talk by Professor Keith Shine from the Department of Meteorology and Climate Change at University of Reading on the subject of “Climate Change"

Summary:

It is almost exactly 50 years since the publication of one of the most influential and important scientific papers which helped launch the modern era of climate change science. This talk takes stock of what we have learnt over those past 5 decades from both observations and improved understanding of the climate system. Can we now safely say that there is unequivocal evidence that human activity has been the dominant cause of the observed warming of our planet since that time?

Keith Shine is the University of Reading’s first Regius Professor of Meteorology and Climate Science. He has had significant involvement in the writing of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s assessment reports, starting with their first assessment published in 1990. His current research activity includes quantifying the drivers of recent climate change, the impact of aviation on climate change (and vice versa) and improving understanding of how water vapour influences our climate.

Format and Venue: 

The Tea Bar will be open from 6.30pm for you to get drinks and chat with fellow attendees. The talk starts at 7.30pm for around 30 to 40 minutes. After the talk we have a quick break so you can top up your drinks and chat about any questions you may have with other participants. The discussions start after the break and we aim to finish around 9.00pm, though you will be welcome to stay around and have a chat with the speaker afterwards.

Entry is free and open to everyone, but we do encourage you to buy drinks and cakes etc. to show your support for The Tea Bar who sponsor the meeting by providing the venue.  

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore and debate the latest ideas in science and technology.

Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique is sponsored by the Active Hampshire Social Club, The British Science Association and The Tea Bar, Basingstoke
