National Science Week Talk at Barry O'Keefe Library

02 August 2017

To celebrate National Science Week, Arek Sinanian will discuss his book ‘A Climate for Denial’ on Monday 14 August 2017 at 7pm.

Climate change has become one of the most polarising issues of our time. Is it because the science is not being understood? Is it because it is difficult to accept that humans can change the climate? Is there a link between climate change scepticism and ideology? Is there a link between belief in the science and belief in God? This talk by Arek Sinanian will provide some answers.

Arek Sinanian, an engineer, was one of Australia’s earliest practitioners in greenhouse gas management and climate change risk assessment. In 2005 he was accepted into the international roster of experts for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and became the only Australian voted on the prestigious six-person Accreditation Panel of the Joint Implementation Supervisory Committee.

The talk is free and bookings are essential at
