The Eastern Alliance for Greenhouse Action
is presenting the forum How will Climate Change
impact Melbourne's East?
The event will
feature a key note presentation from renowned climate scientist Professor David Karoly and it's free. The session will
explore how the climate is changing across Melbourne’s east and present a
number of key regional response initiatives.
Professor David Karoly is Professor of Meteorology
and an ARC Federation Fellow in the School of Earth Sciences. He is an expert
in climate change science and was involved, through several different roles, in
the preparation of the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change (IPCC) released in 2007.
|There's no doubt that climate change is on the mind of|
locals, earlier this year I planted the Climate Change
Time Capsule in Birdsland, to be opened in 2050.
Professor Karoly is active in research on climate
variability and climate change, including greenhouse climate change,
stratospheric ozone depletion and interannual climate variations due to El Niño
Southern Oscillation. Recently, he has been studying the impacts of climate
change on weather extremes and their impacts on human and natural systems. We
are extremely fortunate to have David visit Yarra Ranges.
is a great opportunity to learn more about climate change at a local level.
