alsThe final series of C3W’s climate change lectures concluded this month and was hailed as a great success. Over a thousand people attended the twelve lectures over nine months, with a further 500 watching the lectures remotely via the internet. Speakers included international experts on climate science, oceanography, glaciology, flooding, agriculture and public attitudes, as well as renowned politicians and journalists.
