About the Speech:

Despite a robust multi-decadal long-term trend of global warming, much scientific attention and publicity has surrounded an alleged global warming hiatus, or slowdown. Record-breaking global temperatures in 2014, 2015 and 2016 have reaffirmed the warming trend, and effectively ended discussion of a hiatus. In his talk, Prof. Peter Thorne provided an insider’s perspective on the hiatus’s rise to prominence, and assessed the scientific and societal implications.

About the Speaker:

Peter Thorne is Professor in Physical Geography (Climate Change) at Maynooth University and Director of the Irish Climate Analysis and Research UnitS group (ICARUS).  He is a leading figure in the investigation of observed climate changes globally, with a particular emphasis upon temperature and humidity changes from in situ measurements (marine, land and weather balloon). He was a lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 5th Assessment report in 2015, and the 2014 US National Climate Assessment, and is Chair of the International Surface Temperature Initiative.
