We are pleased to announce Dave Lowe as speaker at our upcoming AGM. Please join us at 7.30pm, Thursday 17 June.
Dave will be known to many as Wellingtonian of the Year in the Environment Category and to the wider climate movement as one of the lead authors on the report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which was awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
He is Adjunct Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry at the Antarctic Research Centre, Victoria University of Wellington – and one of Aotearoa’s earliest climate scientists. He made the first ever southern hemisphere mid-latitudes CO2 measurements at Wellington’s Baring Head 50 years ago. That reading was 323 parts per million (ppm). The most recent was 410ppm. His recently published book The Alarmist: Fifty Years of Measuring Climate Change is a memoir of his life’s work in sounding the alarm of the threats we face.
He has promised to give us a perspective on climate change that includes a couple of concepts he says we have to get to grips with, along with a critique of the Paris Accord and suggestions for how we as a group might be useful. His own most recent involvement has been with secondary schools and the School Strikes 4 Climate movement.
