To highlight recent scientific research on climate change, University College Cork is hosting an Evening on Climate Change on Thursday, January 16.

The main event of the evening will be the screening of the widely acclaimed film “Chasing Ice”.

In the spring of 2005, environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic - to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. However, that first trip north opened his eyes to the undeniable evidence of a warming planet. Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers (http://www.chasingice.com).

The Evening on Climate Change will be started with a short overview of the latest science on Climate Change by Professor Ray Bates, IPCC Report Contributor & Climate Modelling expert. After the film screening there will be reception where attendees will have an opportunity to meet scientists and engineers from UCC who are carrying out research on climate change mitigation, adaptation and modelling and have their “burning” questions on climate change answered.

The event is free but registration is essential - please do so by emailing p.bolger@ucc.ie.
