The struggle against environmental apocalypse - with Richard Black, Director of the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit
Fatal heatwaves across South Asia. Hurricanes and flash floods ravaging Europe. Over 1 billion displaced people. London, New York, Tokyo and five other mega-cities underwater. These are not the makings of another Denis Quaid thriller, but real predictions about the state of the Earth in 2100. Unless the rate of global warming can be slowed.
And yet, international action on climate change has stalled, Donald Trump has pulled the US – the single biggest contributor to global warming – out of the Paris Agreement, and China continues to pump billions of dollars into the global fossil fuels industry.
Now climate change is beginning to have measurable effects on the world’s poorest countries. Already, it is driving severe droughts and crop failures across Africa and causing catastrophic floods across Bangladesh and Nepal.
So, what can be done? Join the YF International and Communications Networks to find out. We'll be joined by Richard Black, Director of the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit, providing expert insights into the climate change crisis. Then, from rising sea-levels to chronic heatwaves,Tristan Grove, Chair of the Communications Network will be discussing the scale of the problem. And finally, Katya Creed, Chair of the International Network will be discussing what exactly we and the governments of the world can do about it. The event will chaired by International Network Vice Chair Rob Newbery. 
So come join us for an insightful evening on one of the biggest issues facing not just international politics, but humanity itself...
