    Most people know that the atmosphere that surrounds planet Earth consists of nitrogen, plus one fifth oxygen (essential for supporting life), and may have also heard of carbon dioxide, often in the context of global warming.
    In this talk, Mike Czerniak (University of Bristol & Edwards Ltd.) will look at the history of climate change, going back 500 million years to look at “trends”, but focusing on more recent times, the gases emitted by human activity and particularly their impact on climate change. He will address questions like:
    • Is CO2 the only greenhouse gas?
    • Can changes in human behaviour ever actually have a positive impact?
    • What about the future? Will some gases outlive humanity?
    • Can anything do done? If so, what?
