The potential impact of climate change and the mitigation of its effects has been discussed for several decades among world leaders, policy makers, scientists and the population as a whole.
The effects of climate change in the anthropocene are now visible in a variety of different forms: species extinction, acidic oceans, high concentration of green house gases, sea level rise, droughts, migration, high temperatures, abrupt weather changes, desertification, etc.
Yet, despite regular negotiations, an enormous body of scientific research and the increase in public awareness and climate activitism, where do we actually stand?
About the event
Integrated in Forskningens Døgn, Science & Cocktails presents a debate on the current state of the climate, whereby moderator and audience can interact with 4 scientists and get to know the actual state of the climate change crisis that permeates politics, economics, agriculture, ecosystems and ice sheets.
- Kirsten Halsnæs has taken a leading role as an economist in the IPCC panel
- Jørgen Olesen studies the effect of climate on agriculture and food systems
- Katherine Richardson studies the impact of climate change in the oceans
- Jens Hesselbjerg has been head of climate research at the Danish Meteorological Institute.
All together, they will present a holistic point of view on the state of the climate on planet Earth.
Afterwards, freely evolving discussions while sipping cocktails with pure carbon-dioxide and listening to Bæst, which drives two baritone guitars, bass and heavy deep drums numbers with the arms of a freight train in the desert sun.
Mixed with Twin Peaks-sounding synth and jangly mandolins, Bæst is a band that sounds as if True Widow and Amens Dunes were in a jam session together with vampires from Only Lovers Left Alive.
