Extreme Events and Climate Change presentation
Slide from presentation
← Previous slide 1 of 22 Next → [i]

This presentation has evolved from a seminar I gave to the Environment Agency South East Climate Change network in 2013. It was one of a series of seminars that we started running in 2010. I was asked to share the slides online by friends at Climate South East (now path of Climate UK). And March 2016 I was very pleased to be invited to give the presentation again to the Reading Climate Forum.

The aim of the presentation is to help explain the link between Extreme Events, which can dramatically affect our lives, and Climate Change, which may seem less urgent and is often talked about as rather abstract changes in global average temperatures.

In the following slides I present:

  • Recap on global average temperature rise
  • What extremes lie behind the average?
  • A look at extreme events across the world
  • ...and events in the UK
  • An almanac of the last 20 years
  • Questions & Answers

I hope you find these notes useful. If you would like to find out more please e-mail contact[@]
