Episode 11 - Reflecting on COP26 by Prof Dave Waltham and Dr Rebecca Fisher

In our latest Seminar Sessions podcast, two academics from the Department of Earth Sciences at Royal Holloway discuss their experience of attending COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, as official observers.

Professor Dave Waltham, Professor of GeoPhysics  and Dr Rebecca Fisher, Lecturer and researcher in the Greenhouse Gas Laboratory, are both involved in teaching and research which engages with issues around Climate Change, greenhouse emissions and energy transition. In November they joined government leaders and representatives from across the world at COP26 in Glasgow,  where important measures to  address global warming were discussed and agreed, with hopes that it will lead to genuine cuts in emissions.
