The well-known climate scientist, Professor Robert (“Bob”) Carter, will be in Mittagong on Thursday 19 February at 6.30pm at Clubbe Hall, Frensham School, to give a Royal Society lecture [Royal Society NSW Southern Highlands branch] on the science of climate change.
Governments around the world are implementing Emissions Trading Schemes (ETS) to combat human induced global warming, so it is extremely important that the underlying science is correct.
The lecture “Testing the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming”, will provide an analysis of many of the aspects of climate science. We are now all familiar with the hypothesis put forward by Al Gore and the IPCC (Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change), that human-caused CO2 emissions will result in dangerous global warming. Bob Carter will address a number of very important issues arising from the hypothesis.
Bob Carter is Research Professor in the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University. He is a palaeontologist, stratigrapher, and marine and environmental geologist. He has appeared as an expert climate change witness before the U.S. Senate, N.Z. parliamentary committees, and the U.K. High Court. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand.
