BBC programme “Climate Change – the Facts” on air tonight

18 April 2019

Tonight at 9pm the long awaited documentary “Climate Change – The Facts” will air on BBC1. Presented by renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough the hour long show will take the audience through the causes and effects of climate change. People, who were caught in climate disasters such as wildfires, share their experiences on the show. Professor Peter Stott, a member of the RMetS Climate Science Communications Group, is one of the climate science experts interviewed in the documentary.

The BBC’s Director of Content, Charlotte Moore said about the film: "We want it to be the definitive film on climate change. To cut through the confusion, tell audiences the facts without any other agenda, explore what a dangerous level of climate change could really mean. It will be unflinching about the potential catastrophe that’s unfolding. And offer the facts about what can still be done…Because, for all the uncomfortable truth, the message is, ultimately, a positive one: We have the power to do something. We hold the future in our hands."

Shortly after the broadcast, the show will be accessible online here. The Society has put together a theme page around climate change and biodiversity if you wish to learn more about the Society’s activities around this topic.
