The earth's climate has changed significantly over the course of its history. In the past there have been both very warm and extremely cold periods. These climate changes have shaped life on earth. On Thursday, March 10, 2022, the Senckenberg Natural History Museum and LOEWE-VeWA are hosting a webinar entitled "Snowed-in dinosaurs and sudden warming: what climate history tells us about our climate future". Start is at 7:15 p.m. 

The webinar takes you on a "journey through time" to some of the climatic highlights of the earth's history. Research into the climate past is not only exciting and fascinating, it also helps us to better understand the processes that trigger climate change. It becomes clear how today's man-made climate change differs from the climate changes of the past and why exactly this is so problematic for life on earth. climate physicist Dr. In her lecture, Julia Brugger takes the participants into the past and future of the earth and then invites them to a discussion. 

This event takes place as part of the VeWA research project (Past warm periods as natural analogues of our "high CO2" climate future). More information about this cooperation project between the Goethe University Frankfurt and Senckenberg can be found on the project homepage. Participation is free of charge.
