It has been up to most that the weather in the world has changed. The weather does not behave like it once did. Everywhere we see droughts, floods and a nature under pressure, where the question of example sea ability to feed fish and mammals are not necessarily to be answered with a “yes.”
UN climate panel IPCC released in 2013 its fifth report with the hitherto strongest collection of evidence that a climate change is underway and that man is the direct cause due to the burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas. The CO2 content in the atmosphere has not been higher in the past 400,000 years and it should be a matter of concern everywhere. We should have a level of 280ppm, but it is 410ppm – that is an increase of about 45%
But what are the reasons behind these changes we see, and not least what is the risk for the future – for our children and grandchildren?
What happens to the weather both here in Denmark and abroad.
The questions are many and I will give answers to most.
The lecture therefore provides an easy-to-understand insight into the complicated debate on the state of the climate – but also gives a narrative about the opportunities that the changes give.
Naturally, I also come to the quite successful climate summit in Paris in November 2015, where the world gathered in the fight against the risks that global warming gives. The Parisagreement is however not sufficient to save the planet, so what are the world going to do in the near future?
The lecture is suitable for both schools, colleges, companies and associations of all kinds – because we will all be affected by the changes in the coming years.
