Climate change: origins, calamities, hopes

The Earth's climate has always changed. But there does this change originates from? And why do we worry about few more degrees? Some people deny climate change and others despair over the end of the world – can we find a reasonable way to renew our hope? Antonello Provenzale, climatologist scientist and Sara Segantin, one of the founders of FridaysForFuture Italia, talk about it.



Antonello Provenzale is a research director at the National Research Council and director of the CNR Institute of Geosciences and Georesources. He has been visiting professor at the École Normale Supérieure and Pierre et Marie Curie University in Paris, the University of Colorado in Boulder and Ben Gurion University in Israel. He coordinates the European project H2020 Ecopotential, dedicated to the use of field and satellite data to characterize changes in natural ecosystems, and the PON LifeWatch project, dedicated to the creation of virtual laboratories for research on the environment, biodiversity and ecosystems. It carries out research on the functioning mechanisms of the Earth system, on the interactions between geosphere and biosphere, on the impacts of climate change on ecosystems and water cycle and on the dynamics of planetary fluids.
