Prof Euan Nisbet

This is the second lecture in our series on “Our Fragile Planet – a Christian Perspective” takes place in Redland Church Hall on Friday March 16th at 7.30, starting with coffee and cake from 7pm.   (For a full list of lectures please see the Bristol page.)

Prof Euan Nisbet will be covering greenhouse warming, atmospheric pollution and climate change.  Euan, a Trustee of Christians in Science, is an Earth Scientist who has spent many years in geological fieldwork on Precambrian rocks. His current work is in atmospheric chemistry, focussing on the major greenhouse gas Methane. Euan leads the UK’s ‘MOYA’ consortium of 14 UK universities and institutes, studying the Global Methane Budget.

The “Our Fragile Planet – a Christian Perspective” series of lectures will look at the Biblical mandate for caring for our world and the science that lies behind the challenges we face. The intention is that the lectures should not only inform us of the objective facts and controversies, but also look at how God’s people can respond both as individuals and corporately, and in a manner that balances the needs of individuals with the need to safeguard the future of our planet.

The venue for all lectures is Redland Church Hall, Redland Green Rd, Bristol BS6 7HE – nearest train Redland Station; nearest bus no. 9; free parking on nearby roads.
