Dr Hansen is one of the world's most eminent climate scientists. He is adjunct professor at the University of Columbia's Earth Institute, and director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

He is probably most well known for bringing the issue of climate change to the world's attention when he testified to the US Congress in 1988.

He is in New Zealand on a speaking tour, and focus on “Human made climate change: a moral, political and legal issue”

“Human-made climate change is a moral issue. It pits the rich and the powerful against the young and the unborn, against the defenceless and against nature. Climate change is a political issue. But politics fails when there is a revolving door between government and the fossil fuel-industrial complex. Climate change is a legal issue. The judiciary provides the possibility of holding our governments accountable for their duty to protect the public interest.”

This lecture will be presented in the St David's Lecture Hall at the University of Otago.
