(From the Green Alliance web site:) "The Paris Agreement aims to keep the global temperature rise since pre-industrial times to well below two degrees. But what do seemingly small temperature changes really mean for the world? Experience from history suggests we have major challenges in store if we do not do more to mitigate and adapt to climate change."

"We will hear from authors Professor Geoffrey Parker (Global crisis: war, climate change and catastrophe in the seventeenth century) and Professor Kyle Harper (The fate of Rome: climate, disease and the end of an empire). They will provide insights into past impacts on human society, and what they tell us about our current response to the climate crisis. This event is chaired by Green Alliance trustee Dr Claire Craig CBE whose work has looked at how stories change public discourse."
 
An article on the Insidetrack Green Alliance Blog discusses Prof. Parker's book, Global Crisis: war, climate change and catastrophe in the seventeenth century.
