“The Case for Optimism on Climate Change”is a new TED Talk from Al Gore,presented withthe same humour and humanity that he conveyed in ‘An Inconvenient Truth’. This short presentation uses up-to-the-minute examples from around the globe and conveys Gore’s reasons for optimism that the world can still successfully tackle the threat of climate change.

Following Q&A and then refreshments, we will watch episode 3 of the new David Attenborough series, “Great Barrier Reef”, recently launched on the BBC.
Attenborough returns to his ‘most magical place on Earth’, and this final episode includes beautiful footage of corals that are now threatened by climate change and detrimental land-based human activities.
