2020 Investigator Lecture Climate Change: Managing the unavoidable, avoiding the unmanageable

Venue: Her Majesty’s Theatre​ Adelaide, SA, Australia

Start Date: Thu 22 Oct 2020 Start Time: 1800

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen energy demand reduce across the world, with fewer greenhouse gas emissions and less air pollution in big cities, resulting in a 17% global reduction in carbon dioxide emissions in April 2020.

Big global emitters like the US, EU, and also Australia with its large per capita consumption witnessed declines in power consumption and transport emissions as people worked from home.

Imagine a world where carbon neutrality is the norm and what that would mean for the future. Could the current challenges speed up our transition to a zero-carbon economy?

Professor David Karoly, one of the world’s leading climate experts, will provide fresh insights into the ongoing effects of climate change on our planet for the 2020 Flinders University Investigator Lecture at 6pm on Thursday 22 October.
