The atmosphere is a crucial part of what makes our Earth liveable. Not only does it provide us with oxygen, it also blocks some of the Sun's dangerous rays from reaching Earth and traps heat, allowing for a stable climate. But over the past century, human activity has had tremendous impact on the atmosphere. How have big changes like Climate Change altered the atmosphere?

The impact of Climate Change and other ecological changes exacerbated by human activity on the atmosphere is well-documented. Our expert speaker will provide a scientific analysis of those impacts.
