Climate justice and how Sweden can lead the way

A successful lecture about climate and Sweden’s role in the climate debate was held by Professor Raymond Pierrehumbert on 11 February. See the recorded lecture here!

Pierrehumbert

Climate Professor aiming for zero carbon dioxide emissions

Read an interview with Professor Pierrehumbert where he explains his views on global warming: - The decisions we take today determine the climate for the next ten thousand years! When the total amount of coal burned and winds up in the atmosphere amounts to one trillion tonnes - the Earth's average temperature will increase by two degrees. So far, we have emitted a half of that amount of carbon to the atmosphere.
