Professor James Renwick | Antarctica is melting

In this episode of Shaping The Future, I am speaking to climate scientist Professor James Renwick, about the scale of the risks posed by the melting of the East and West Antarctic ice sheets due to human emissions from our relentless burning of fossil fuels.

Sea-level rise is the most obvious impact that will destroy cities around the world but there are also other less obvious impacts on agriculture and population displacement that can also lead to conflict if we choose to continue to do nothing.

James is based at Victoria University in New Zealand specialising in large-scale climate variations and was awarded the Prime Ministers Science Prize by Jacinda Ardern in 2018.
