Monday 14th October
Science Faith Lecture – Who Controls the World;s Climate: God, Nature or People?
Speaker: Professor Mike Hulme (Professor of Human Geography, University of Cambridge)
Proposed solutions to the ‘climate crisis’ are charged with ethical implications. For example, is it the responsibility of rich countries or rich people to take the lead in avoiding potential disaster? Is it the task of national governments or ordinary citizens, technological engineers or social entrepreneurs, religious leaders or cultural celebrities? Probably, each of these groups has a distinctive role to play.
Time: 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Location: Norwich Cathedral
