Climate Change Question Time - update

There is one alteration to announce to the line-up for the Climate Change Question Time on Wednesday 24 November at the Willis Building in London. One of the positions on the panel will now be filled by Abyd Karmali, Managing Director and Global Head of Carbon Markets at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. He will participate in place of James Cameron. Abyd has worked on the climate change challenge since 1990, and is currently focused on the role of the financial sector in allocating capital efficiently and innovatively in a global economy that will become increasingly constrained by a cap on carbon emissions.

The full line-up of panellists is now:

  • Sir John Beddington (Government Chief Scientific Adviser)
  • Ralph Cicerone (President, National Academy of Sciences, USA)
  • Abyd Karmali (Global Head of Carbon Markets, BAML)
  • Tim Lenton (Earth System Modelling, University of East Anglia)
  • Tim Palmer (University of Oxford & ECMWF)
  • Vicky Pope (Head of Climate Change Advice, Met Office)
  • Alan Thorpe (Chief Executive, NERC)
  • Lord Adair Turner (Chairman, Financial Services Authority)

The discussions will be chaired by Jonathan Leake, Science and Environment Editor of the Sunday Times, and Oliver Morton, Energy and Environment Editor of the Economist.
