Climate Change Question Time with Solitaire Townsend (Panel/Edited Extract)
Static Preview
RSA Spotlights – taking you straight to the heart of the event, highlighting our favourite moments and key talking points.

In an edited extract from the second event in our brand-new series, we adopted a 'Question Time' format, and gathered expert representatives in each of what we feel are the seven main dimensions of the climate problem: science, behaviour, democracy, law, technology, economy and culture.

Our panel provided expert insights into the competing priorities, responsibility voids and overlapping areas of jurisdiction that make climate change such a difficult issue to resolve. 

Panellists included Economist, LSE, Lord Nicholas Stern; climate scientist, UCL, Chris Rapley CBE; Green Party member of the London Assembly, Baroness Jenny Jones; Co-founder, Futerra, Solitaire Townsend; green-energy entrepreneur and founder of Solarcentury, Jeremy Leggett; psychoanalytic psychotherapist, Rosemary Randall; environmental lawyer, Friends of the Earth, Jake White.

This Changes Everything, Naomi Klein | Guardian Docs

Published on Mar 6, 2015

Naomi Klein didn't think climate change was her issue but when she realised the close link between environmental destruction and inequality, everything changed.

In Naomi's home country, the Canadian government granted virtual free rein to companies seeking oil in Alberta's tar sands, creating a boom town in Fort McMurray. Like large numbers of activists across the world, the indigenous population in Alberta protested the environmental damage. How can we connect the dots among movements around the world to tackle climate change and inequality at the same time?

Counting the Cost of Climate Change -Heat in Heartland
Static Preview
If nothing is done about climate change, dangerous levels of extreme heat are likely across the Midwest, causing crop losses of corn and wheat up to 69 percent, rising energy costs up to 16 percent higher, and a reduction in labor productivity by three percent. Those are some of the warnings in a report (summary here) from the Risky Business Project, Heat in the Heartland: Climate Change and Economic Risk in the Midwest. The Minute via 3BL Media with John Howell

Seven Serious Jokes About Climate Change by Marcus Brigstocke
Static Preview
Performance by comedian Marcus Brigstocke. Climate change is no laughing matter, but when all else fails, perhaps it's time to take humour a bit more seriously? Humour has long been a powerful tool in the social-change arsenal, but is it powerful enough to help us break through the static on this colossal issue? Is 'laughing-it-off' just about evasion, or is it the key to transforming public perspective at scale, in time?


With the climate clock ticking we witness a seemingly endless cycle of public talks, journalistic comment pieces and debates on old turf, mostly reinforcing what we already know and fear.

U.S. NOAA Says 2014 was Hottest Year on Record
Static Preview
Last year was Earth's warmest on record, separate reports by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released on Friday showed.

With the exception of 1998, the 10 warmest years on record have now occurred since the year 2000, according to analysis of surface temperature measurements by NASA and NOAA.
NASA said since 1880, when record-keeping began, Earth’s average surface temperature has warmed by about 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degrees Celsius), a trend that is largely driven by the increase in carbon dioxide and other human emissions into the planet’s atmosphere. Published on Jan 16, 2015

An introduction to climate change in 60 seconds by Royal Societry
Static Preview
Climate science explained in 60 seconds by the Royal Society and the US National Academy of Sciences.


During the last 200 years, human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels have increased concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere by 40%. If unchecked, continuing emissions will warm up the planet by 2.6°C to 4.8°C by the end of this century. This would have serious implications for human societies and the natural world.

This 60-second animation from the world's two leading science academies brings you the science behind climate change. Published on Dec 10, 2014

Looking for more?
- How confident are scientists that Earth will warm further over the coming century?
- Are climate changes of a few degrees a cause for concern?
- Climate is always changing. Why is climate change of concern now?

The full document 'Climate Change: Evidence & Causes' is available to read on the Royal Society website here.
