Fair brother Lecture now on YouTube!

Here’s the final film of the public lecture I gave in May. Have a look, I absolutely promise it should be accessible to everyone, that’s the idea! Some of my friends were worried about coming incase they wouldn’t understand it and reviews have been pretty nice so I hope you will enjoy it too…

Can you find London?

This is well worth a play- what would the world look like if all of the ice melted? Toggle cities on for it to really hit home.

It is unclear from this if they’ve included the thermal expansion that would take place in the oceans if the earth was warm enough for all the ice to melt- sea levels also rise as the ocean warms so if this isn’t included the sea level rise in some areas would be significantly larger than this.

If the Larsen C ice shelf (the one I look at) collapsed it wouldn’t contribute to sea level rise directly, but the glaciers feeding it are likely to speed up and this will, and by how much is unclear.
