Palaeontologist reveals real forces behind climate change

 

More than just a modern-day problem, climate change is an ongoing, natural phenomenon. Discover more about the climatic effects of interacting natural forces when palaeontologist, Dr Roger Smith, of Iziko Museums, discusses "The fossil record of climate change" on Monday, 30 July at 18:00 at the Iziko South African Museum.

Focusing specifically on Karoo rocks and fossils, Dr Smith explains how these ancient artefacts offer insight into both long-term natural changes, as well as major unpredictable catastrophes.

 

Presented as part of Iziko Museums' Winter Public Programme, the event is free. Enquiries: Wandile 021 481 3804 or 083 335 6461 or email publicprogs@iziko.org.za.
