Lecture: “All about global warming and its impacts in the Caribbean”


Jean Jouzel, renowned climatologist and glaciologist and member of the International Panel of Experts on Climate Change (IPCC), is hosting a conference on global warming and its impact on island territories, this Friday, January 26, 2018, at Cinestar, in Les Abymes, Guadeloupe. The lecture will be followed by a discussion.

Description: Global warming is a reality. There are just a few skeptics on climate change, including Donald Trump, who insist on denying it. Around the world, we are seeing the consequences of this disruption. This is also the case in Guadeloupe, where the coastline continues to decline. But this is not the only impact on island territories.

Faced with this observation, the LATIJ association wants to inform people on the phenomenon and its causes, on its effects, and (why not?) to determine possible modes of response. To this end, the association invited one of the world’s leading experts on the subject, Jean Jouzel, a recognized climatologist and glaciologist and member of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Jean Jouzel is a Nobel Peace Prize—since the IPCC collectively received this distinction in 2007—and winner of a CNRS Gold Medal, the highest distinction of scientific research in France.

Entrance Fee: 10 euros. Because of limited space, advance reservations are highly recommended. For reservations, call 06 90 59 88 88 or 06 90 39 89 46.
