What's the talk about?

Despite a consilience of evidence and an overwhelming consensus among the scientific community, the science of human caused climate change is still widely misunderstood and misrepresented. Recent events in the US illustrate just how widespread and influential climate denial has become; with potentially catastrophic implications for all of us.

With climate misinformation still prevalent in the British media, what can we do to better promote scientific understanding of this crucial issue? In the spirit of mounting a defense of evidence based policy this talk aims to highlight some of the key misconceptions about the science and explain why they are wrong.


Dr. Aaron Thierry received his PhD in Ecology from the University of Sheffield. He subsequently researched the impacts of global warming on the carbon cycle in Arctic ecosystems. His studies have led him to be very concerned about the potential impacts of disruptions to our climate and he now spends much of his time lobbying for political action to reduce carbon emissions. A passionate defender for science and rational thinking Aaron was one of Sheffield's contingent who took part in the March for Science in London this April.
