how will climate change impact melbourne's east?

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.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about climate change at a local level.
