Local weatherman Eric Gilbert will join a Marlborough-based professor of earth sciences to explore climate change on our doorstep – and as part of a global issue.

Eric Gilbert (pictured above with his weather station) who has been recording the weather daily in Marlborough, Wiltshire for 34 years, will talk about the trends he has noticed at a very local level.

Professor Dave Waltham teaches students to look for oil at Royal Holloway University earth sciences department, yet as a scientist knows the devastating contribution fossil fuels have made to climate change.

He has developed a model which demonstrates the time we have left to bring down greenhouse gas emissions if we are to meet the Paris Agreement of no more than 1.5 degree global rise in temperature.

After the presentations, Citizens’ Climate Lobby UK executive committee member Louisa Davison will discuss the global organisation’s solution of a carbon fee and dividend, where carbon from fossil fuels is taxed and the revenue is divided equally among UK citizens.
