Winter Lecture Series: Climate Change: Past, Present and Future
Variations in climate have been common throughout Earth’s history. Prior to the rise of civilization, the causes of climate change were exclusively natural. Some have postulated that human impacts on climate may have begun with the advent of agriculture about 10,000 years ago, but there is no doubt that greenhouse gas emissions are now the dominant driver of climate change and will remain so for the foreseeable future. We will discuss the nature of past changes in climate and their causes, and what such changes imply for the future.
Anthony Broccoli is professor of atmospheric science at Rutgers University and co-director of the Rutgers Climate Institute. He studies the changes in the climate system using models and observations. He is a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
