Description

2019 Hay Lecture, Hosted by the School of Environment

Professor James Renwick, Victoria University Wellington

Climate change: what it means for New Zealand and the Pacific

Global climate change is changing the weather and redrawing the coastlines of the world. Sea level rise, extreme storms, droughts and floods are affecting every corner of the globe already and the effects will get a lot worse if we don’t take urgent action to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. Pacific Islands are in the firing line on many of these issues and New Zealand does not get off scot-free. This presentation will cover the state of climate change today and will review how future climates could affect New Zealand and the Pacific. It will also talk about what’s needed to rein in the changes and secure a more manageable, less risky future.
