PHEW WHATTA SCORCHER
A special online presentation by Malcolm Lennox
This popular headline in the English tabloid press has had to be employed more often in recent times due to global warming.
The speaker, Malcolm Lennox, is a geologist by profession and looks at the earth and its climate from a deep time perspective. The Earth’s 4.5 billion years of history is one of the interaction of myriads of cyclical events with periods in hundreds of millions of years down to the daily and annual cycles of the sun.
This talk will examine these as a background to Human history leading to the modern day when fear of climate change has become a dominant feature. We examine modern global warming, the idea that it is man-made and test this idea against the past record and its ability to predict the future; the aim is to come to some view for ourselves.
Note: The views expressed in the talk are not necessarily those of the School.
Sun 19 July, 7pm AEST
The presentation will be delivered online, via Zoom. The link to join will be provided following registration.
