Prof. Ed Hawkins from University of Reading visualised the annual average temperature of the Earth from 1850 – 2020 (from the left side to the right side of the picture) with red (warmer temperature) and blue (cooler temperature) stripes.

Climate change has become a major challenge of our time. Scientists are observing changes in the Earth's climate system. Many of the changes observed in the climate are unprecedented in thousands of years. Some of the changes such as continued sea level rise, are irreversible over hundreds to thousands of years.

In this talk, the speaker will briefly introduce the observed and projected changes in the climate system, and discuss why there is an urgent need to step up efforts to tackle climate change.
