Distinguished Speaker Series: Climate change: facts, uncertainties, and the way forward after Copenhagen - Lord May presentation

On 19 May, the Lowy Institute was delighted to welcome back Lord May of Oxford, a member of the Institute’s International Advisory Council, to speak on climate change as part of our Distinguished Speaker Series. Lord May argued that although it is beyond dispute that the burning of fossil fuels is thickening Earth’s greenhouse gas blanket (to levels not seen for tens of millions of years), there remain some uncertainties about the severity of particular adverse consequences and the timescales for manifestation.
