The Rtn Hon Lord Adair Turner HonFRSE, Chairman of the Financial Services Authority and Professor David Sugden FRSE, Professor of Geography, University of Edinburgh and Chair, RSE Climate Change Inquiry lead this Facing up to Climate Change Discussion Forum.
Climate change will affect us all, for example in energy, food security, population migration and competition for resources. Scotland, given its long history as a major contributor to rising greenhouse gas levels and access to renewable energy resources, has a role to play. The RSE Inquiry, 'Facing up to Climate Change', sought evidence from a wide variety of people and organisations to highlight the opportunities of a transition to a low-carbon future and the barriers to change. Lord Turner and Professor Sugden will discuss what the challenges are and what the future may hold.
