Record-breaking temperatures in the Arctic, what this means for climate change
17 July, 2020
Q&A with Prof Martin Siegert on the impacts of a six-month Siberian heatwave, which scientists say would have been impossible without global warming.
A record-breaking heatwave in Siberia in the Arctic Circle has seen temperatures over the past six months reach as high as 38°C, and 5°C above the average for the region.
Professor Martin Siegert, Co-Director of the Grantham Institute - Climate Change and the Environment at Imperial College london, was interviewed by BBC News about a report by scientists from the UK Met Office, who say the worrying situation have been impossible without global warming.
Question: What exactly is, 'The Grantham Institute - Climate Change and the Environment'?
"The Grantham Institute - Climate Change and the Environment was launched in February 2007 with the announcement of a multi-million pound donation from the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment".
What is, 'The Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the of the Environment'?
"The Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment was established in 1997 by Jeremy and Hannelore Grantham.
Jeremy is co-founder and Chairman of investment management firm GMO, LLC.
Jeremy was elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2015, was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2016, and received with Hannelore the Carnegie Medal for Philanthropy in 2017, all for leadership in climate change activities".
Therefore, in essence we only have one agenda, founded on an enormous donation from a wealthy couple.
It certainly doesn't come across like that in the BBC news report.
Where is any alternative viewpoint, given a fair opportunity?
