    Event description

    There is now clear evidence that during the last decade global temperatures exceeded the 1.5oC guardrail and are on track to pass the critical 2 degrees threshold in the next few years.

    This seminar will focus on new evidence presented in the journal Nature Climate Change, looking at long-living Sclerosponges. These carbonate skeleton producing species can provide a ‘diary’ of sea temperatures going back over 300 years.

    The extraordinary warming that occurred in 2023 made it the hottest year on record. When coupled with this new research, a very different picture of global warming emerges.

    Speaker: Professor Malcolm McCulloch

    Ms Kate Chaney, MP
