TITLE:
“Promoting Truth in Climate Science”.


LECTURER:
Nic Lewis studied mathematics and physics at the University of Cambridge. After a career in technical areas of finance, he found his vocation in climate science. His interest in the science was initially aroused by the hockey stick controversy and since 2011 he has focussed on estimation of climate sensitivity. He acted as an expert reviewer of the IPCC AR5 and recently reviewed in depth the IPCC AR6 chapters dealing with climate sensitivity. He is also involved with Bayesian statistical methodology and its application in climate science.

TITLE:
“Getting Real on Climate Sensitivity”.
