Climate Change and the End of the World




10:00 - 12:00

About the talk

Visions of a future with entire civilisations laid waste used to be the preserve of religion. In recent years, however, scientists have joined in on the action. This discussion will bring together scientists and theologians to consider the implications – for science, theology, and the future of humanity – of invoking the end of the world as we know it.
