The geological record of climate change

Professor Christopher Jackson

The Earth is warming, and dangerously so. But is this unusual? Have there been times in the past when the Earth has been very hot or perhaps, very cold? And if so, what caused this, and what did these changes in climate mean for life on Earth? In this talk Professor Christopher Jackson looked at the geological record of climate change, and the implications this has for the Earth’s future climate and habitability.
