1 Ariki Street New Plymouth , New Zealand (map)
Join us at the Puke Ariki Museum Foyer to discover how we know that our climate can change? What is anthropogenic global warming and can we prevent the climate from changing too much? Tim and James will explore the what, why, and how of climate change â€“ from the distant past to the present and to what the future holds. We will cover how the Antarctic has responded to climate change through the ice age cycles and distant past warmer worlds, and weâ€™ll look at how the climate is changing now. Weâ€™ll touch on how we know todayâ€™s changes are because of human activity and how climate models give us a window into what we can expect in the future.
