CLIMATE CHANGE AND IRELAND: BRIDGING THE GAP FROM SCIENCE TO POLICY
Professor John Sweeney, Emeritus Professor at Maynooth University, will discuss the role of greenhouse gas emissions in shaping present and future global climate. He will look at the impact that climate change is likely to have on a mid latitude country such as Ireland, considering various sectors such as water, biodiversity, agriculture and construction.
