Climate Change Speakers

Arguably the biggest challenge we face as a human race, climate change has constantly been at the forefront of the news. As CO2 and sea levels rise, the Polar ice caps continue to melt and planet Earth is heating up at a rate that could see our highest temperature for thousands of years.


Spurred on by the latest reports and troubling images from Antartica, activists have concluded that the time for action is now. Even the younger generation have been making their voices heard on the matter, with the teenager who inspired school protests around the world, Greta Thunberg, becoming something of a figurehead for the movement.


Able to discuss the challenges we face in terms of making life on earth sustainable, climate change speakers can forecast the future, and deliver a unique glimpse into the work being carried out to save the planet.


What Is The History Of Climate Change?


Since Thomas Newcomen invented the steam engine in 1712, human’s have been impacting the status quo of the planet. After the industrial revolution triggered the downfall of our climate, human’s have since caused a landslide of rising temperatures, sea and air pollution levels to a point of seemingly no return. 


In 1824, French physicist, Joseph Fourier, defined the “greenhouse effects” as the act of augmenting the Earth’s temperature. This notion was continued by Swedish chemist Svante Arrhenius in 1896, who cited that an increase of greenhouse gasses will cause the Earth’s temperature to rise. Though society has known of the negative effects greenhouse gasses have on our planet, it took until the 21st century for the government to acknowledge the crisis. 


Why Do I Need A Climate Change Speaker?


Climate change speakers have the first-hand experience and scientific knowledge to highlight the severity of our climate disaster, from the stance of an expert. Spurred on by the latest findings, our climate change speakers are dedicated to educating businesses on more sustainable methods of practice, and inspiring people to change their own habits. 


From arctic explorers to scientists pioneering new methods of transport, our speakers can discuss the past, present and future of climate change from an extensive range of perspectives. Since the UK parliament declared a climate emergency in May 2019, these speakers have become a popular addition to industry events.
