Join climate campaigner and author Alice Bell in a trip through time to the decisions, inventions and accidents which created the warming world we’re living in today – and how it could have ended up quite differently. Beginning with the discovery of CO2 in Edinburgh, travel through the pioneering age of coal-powered steam technology to the early days of oil and the development of the car, tracing the history of climate science from Eunice Foote’s discoveries in the 1850s to the first government briefings and the rise of mainstream media and public awareness through the late twentieth century. Climate sceptics, climate summits and climate science are all on the agenda as the audience is asked to vote: if you were there, what would you have
done? Hosted by the National Museum of Scotland’s Dr Rebekah Higgitt.
