Climate: lessons from the past, options for the future

As part of the Alumni Festival Saturday lecture programme on the Sidgwick Site, Professor Eric Wolff explores how the Earth’s climate responds to rising concentrations of carbon dioxide.  Eric uses records of the past, including those from Antarctic ice cores, to see how climate has responded to natural disturbances in the past.
