In the 21st century, humans face multiple existential threats: global pandemics, increasing inequality, failure of democracies and climate change, to name just a few. How do we cope with all of this in a time when we are bone weary after months of battling COVID-19? In this presentation, 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Recipient Dave Lowe (sharing the prize as part of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) will provide a brief update on modern climate science followed by my perceptions of the linkages between the COVID 19 crisis, climate change and the crucial role of international cooperation in times of need. He’ll end with a message of hope: humans are resilient and very innovative — we have the tools to cope with the climate emergency — but will we heed the warnings and use them?

Dave Lowe, a New Zealand atmospheric chemist, was the first person to show that atmospheric CO2 was increasing in the Southern Hemisphere almost 50 years ago. As well as New Zealand, Dave has worked in research labs in the USA and Germany and was one of the lead authors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Changes Nobel Peace Prize-winning report in 2007. He currently works on climate change outreach and is publishing a book and documentary film on his experiences.
