2071: The World We’ll Leave Our Grandchildren

Tue 30 June 2015,

Chris Rapley’s performance of 2071 (the year his granddaughter will be his current age) at the Royal Court Theatre earlier this year captivated audiences and received five-star notices. He spoke clearly about the science of climate change but, unlike many pessimists, felt that human ingenuity could see changes that will help all – including his granddaughter – inherit an inhabitable planet.

In Paris in December this year, the most important climate change conference there has ever been takes place. In this presentation, and his new book based on the performance, Rapley, one of the world’s leading climate scientists, offers a clear and concise explanation of climate change – how it’s happened, our part in it, what we are currently doing about it and what we need to do about it – and expresses hope that we can still create a world for all to live and prosper in.

This event will be in the Planetarium, At-Bristol.
