We're well past the point of turning things around, and our future holds sea levels rising by up to 2.5m, global temperatures continuing to climb, and longer, more intense weather events.

How we got here isn’t a mystery, but, luckily, what we need to do next isn’t either.

Join Professor Michael Mann (who has helped elevate our understanding of global temperatures historically, and where we might be headed next) to explore how Net Zero needs to be a milestone towards greater, more sustained change, not the ultimate goal.

He will take you through what science says needs to be done, from high-level actions that global powers and corporations must adopt, to lower-level ones that we as individuals can work into our daily lives.

Who is Professor Michael Mann?
Michael's work has been revolutionary in elevating our understanding of global temperatures historically, and where we might be headed next.

He pioneered the statistical work that led to the creation of the now-famous Hockey Stick Graph, authored more than 200 peer-reviewed publications, and has been awarded numerous commendations for his efforts. Currently, he's directing the University of Pennsylvania's new centre for Science, Sustainability & the Media.

His best-selling books include:

The New Climate War
The Madhouse Effect, and
The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars
