You are invited to a Climate Action Canberra public meeting this Monday evening. Hope to see you there!

The Science of Climate Feedbacks

Monday 11 May – 6:00 to 7:15pm – Haydon-Allen Tank, ANU
Featuring: Janette Lindesay, Deputy Director of the Fenner School for Environment and Society, ANU, and Steven Lade, Nonlinear Physics Centre, ANU

This forum will review, for a non-technical audience, what feedbacks and non-linearities are, why they can lead to ‘runaway change’ and other drastic effects in systems such as the climate, what recent scientific developments have led to better understanding of climate feedbacks, and how this affects predictions of likely future climate change. Time will also be available for questions.
