This series of lectures will look at the Biblical mandate for caring for our world and the science that lies behind the challenges we face. The intention is that the lectures should not only inform us of the objective facts and controversies, but also look at how God's people can respond both as individuals and corporately, and in a manner that balances the needs of individuals with the need to safeguard the future of our planet.

Caring for the Atmosphere

The talk by Professor Euan Nisbet will include a consideration of greenhouse warming, pollution and climate change.

The second lecture in the series on Our Fragile Planet - a Christian Perspective takes place in Redland Church Hall (Note: not in the church building itself, but opposite, next to the tennis club) at 7.30pm, starting with coffee and cake from 7pm. 

Prof Euan Nisbet will be speaking on Caring for the Atmosphere and will be covering greenhouse warming, atmospheric pollution and climate change. Euan, a Trustee of Christians in Science, is an Earth Scientist who has spent many years in geological fieldwork on Precambrian rocks. His current work is in atmospheric chemistry, focussing on the major greenhouse gas Methane. Euan leads the UK's 'MOYA' consortium of 14 UK universities and institutes, studying the Global Methane Budget.

 Attendance is free but a voluntary donation of £5 is requested to cover costs.
