Sydney Ideas: Understanding carbon in the air

The science and politics of rising atmospheric temperatures

University of Cambridge Professor Herbert Huppert leads this insightful conversation on how global temperatures in the earth’s atmosphere has increased over time and what we can do to stop potential calamity.

Hear from geophysicist Herbert Huppert as he explores how the earth’s atmospheric temperature is increasing and why it’s a disaster for humans.

In this event, he will explain how carbon dioxide and the methane content of the atmosphere are linked to the average global surface temperature. He will present various predictions into the future and useful ways of restoring balance, such as carbon storage and chemical reaction, as well as how governments around the world have reacted to these ideas and possible solutions.

With climate change being a very real and looming threat, this talk offers insights into the science behind what’s happening and how we can deal with such challenges through individual, collective and political action.
