Join us for this free public lecture by world-leading Swiss climate scientist, Dr. Thomas Stocker. Dr. Stocker holds one of the most prestigious jobs in the scientific world as Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group I which assesses the physical science basis that underpins our understanding of climate change and global warming. He also heads the Division of Climate and Environmental Physics at The University of Bern, which is at the cutting edge of climate research.

Dr. Stocker’s talk, “Climate Change: Why do we know that we know”, will explain the physical science basis of climate change. This event is an important opportunity for British Columbians to learn about the latest scientific discoveries, and to ask questions on the IPCC, the leading international body for assessing climate change.
