Chairman's Announcements

To receive any announcements from the Chairman.


The Chair said a summary of his engagements could be found on the website.


The Chair said he had received correspondence since the previous meeting taking issue with a comment he had made regarding the significant contribution volcanoes made to global warming. He said he stood corrected as recent evidence suggested that at most only 2% of global CO2 emissions were attributed to volcanic activity. He was delighted that this was the case as human behaviour could be modified to reduce CO2 emissions, that of volcanoes less so. He thanked those that had provided him with this information and asked for it to be put on record that anthropogenic carbon was the primary cause of climate change.
