Please join me in welcoming Dr. James Dyke for a Cake Panel to discuss his new film "The Race Is On: Secrets and Solutions of Climate Change."
About the film: While public perception about climate change is good in that people know urgent action is needed, most people are still largely unaware just how serious the situation is, or how much the international community is relying on highly speculative technological solutions to avoid dangerous climate change. If these solutions fail, then we could face disastrous changes to climate and much of the biosphere. THE RACE IS ON tells this epic story through the words of four world leading experts: Dr. Gavin Schmidt from NASA; Kate Raworth from Oxford university; Professor Kevin Anderson from Tyndall Centre, and Paul Allen from Zero Carbon Britain. The challenge we face is unprecedented, but the race to beat climate breakdown is one we can win.
