We've known for a century that human emissions of CO2 could lead to a warmer planet and warmer wetter winters. Today social scientists play a critical role informing policy by exploiting the insights of the sciences and the foresight provided by our models (physical, social and economic). We will see how making the best use of the available science requires as much common sense as it does computer simulation. Speakers include Professor Leonard Smith.
