Alice Bows-Larkin: Climate change is happening. Here's how we adapt

According to climate researcher Alice Bows-Larkin, that's the type of future in store for us if we don't significantly cut our greenhouse gas emissions now. She suggests that it's time we do things differently—a whole system change, in fact—and seriously consider trading economic growth for climate stability.

Alice was trained as an astrophysicist by the University of Leeds. She then completed her PhD in Climate Modeling at Imperial College to subsequently work in science communication. Since 2003 she has been working with the interdisciplinary Tyndall Centre, researching conflicts between climate change and aviation. Within a climate change context, she directed projects on international shipping and food supply scenarios. She was also appointed as speaker for the School of Earth Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences in 2008. Alice is currently the director of Tyndall Manchester, and the lead investigator on a large consortium project funded by EPSRC called Shipping in Changing Climates. She also collaborates on other research at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and gives lectures regarding topics focused on energy and decarburization within the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering (MACE), University of Manchester. In recent times the EPSRC put her in charge of a huge project called Water-Food Energy Nexus.
