scientist 51: the climate physicist – Tim Palmer predicts climate change (2015)

Can we believe that the climate will change in the long term, when we can’t even predict tomorrow’s weather? Our guest Tim Palmer is a Professor in Climate Physics at the University of Oxford, and President of the Royal Meteorological Society at the time. In this interview Professor Palmer tell us what the job entails and how maths and physics are at the core of making predictions. He’ll remind us that we are quite good at predicting the weather. Interviewed in 2015.
