How much the climate changes from here depends on what we choose to do with greenhouse gas emissions, both globally and locally.
This presentation by James Renwick outlines the drivers of climate change, the current state of the climate and how it’s evolving.
James has more than 30 years’ experience in weather and climate research, from weather forecasting at MetService to undertaking climate change research at NIWA and Victoria University. His main field is large-scale climate change, including the El Niño/La Niña cycle, the mid-latitude westerly winds, and climate impacts on New Zealand and the Antarctic.
James was the lead author for the last two Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Assessment Reports. He is also a member of the World Climate Research Programme Joint Scientific Committee and was the Chair of the Royal Society of New Zealand Climate Expert Panel.
