Oxford@Home - Climate crisis: how to keep 'listening to the science'

Oxford@Home is a University of Oxford initiative launched during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 to offer a series of live online talks to share knowledge and insights from world-leading academics and expert staff.

On Friday 12 February, Reuben Fellow Fredi Otto will be live on YouTube to talk about the climate crisis and how to "keep listening to the science".

Protesters around the world ask decision makers to “listen to the science” and act accordingly in light of the climate crisis. In some respects, it is very simple what this means: we need to stop emitting greenhouse gases as quickly as possible, to stabilise global temperatures. But climate change is already here, affecting everyone everywhere today, this means we also need to adapt. But to what changes where? The science here is evolving quickly and the best available science is thus changing as well. In this talk, Professor Otto will give a brief overview of these evolutions and discuss how to best keep “listening to the science”.
