This lecture will review what we can learn about historical climate change from the little-known geological record hidden in rock and ice cores, and examine what that has to tell us about what is happening to our climate now and what may happen in future. The talk will draw on the speaker’s extensive experience of working in Antarctica and be of interest to anyone interested in the vitally important topic of climate change, which can be expected to affect all our lives in the future. Colin Summerhayes, a distinguished marine geologist and oceanographer, is the lead author of the authoritative position statements on climate change published by The Geological Society of London.
