A Very Dangerous Experiment with our Planet - Stamford Raffles Lecture 2013

The climate of the Earth enables it to support a wide variety of life. This Lecture will explore the overall workings of the climate system, and the interactions of its component systems, including the biosphere. There are numerous global environmental problems related to human activity and Sir Brian Hoskins will describe why, in particular, the addition of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere is a very dangerous experiment to perform with our planet.
