David will give a public lecture at Durham University Energy Institute on 16th October. Temperatures continue to rise, extreme weather events are being becoming more frequent and the full scale of the climate crisis is becoming clearer to see. Despite amplified impacts 2019 has already been a remarkable year of action - millions have joined global climate protests, climate emergencies have been declared and net-zero has become enshrined in UK law. Something seems to be happening, but is it too little too late?
