A comedic look at the science of climate change by Jon Matthews.
Why do some people believe climate change is natural?
What does crystallised rat urine have to do with climate science?
What happens when three climate change deniers walk into a bar?
Come and find out the answer to these questions and more with a comedy presentation that makes the science of climate change fun and accessible. Jon Matthews is a science teacher and a stand-up comedian based in Bristol who specialises in comedy about science, politics and society. In this presentation he will combine jokes with scientific theory and fact to explain how the Earth’s climate has changed through history, how it’s changing now and what part humans have played in this.
