Geology and Climate Change.
Tuesday 12 February 2019 - Alvin Chung, Preeti Krishna & Ashley Pang, Year 13
As Climate Change is a global crisis, we need to know more about it. Last year, we had a lecture about what we can do in the future to save the world from Climate Change. This year, we are going to talk about Climate Change from a geological point of view. There are three main points that we will be focusing on, they are
- How the formation of rock tells us its environmental conditions (e.g. temperature) in the carbon cycle
- How we can tell Climate Change within the structures of rock, including fossils
- How the impacts of Climate Change influence geology and us
Since Climate Change is changing the Earth’s structure, we ought to protect the Earth and reduce the likelihood of experiencing the Second Climate Change.
