What does climate change have to do with NZ fashion week?

Written by

At the SCAR Open Science meeting.

Tim Naish and Carlota Escutia both gave great talks on paleoclimate climate looking at what the past can tell us about the future. 

Sediments records tell us that we need to go back 3 million years to get temperatures as warm as it is likely to be in 2100.  The take home message is that Antarctica could contribute 1m a year to sea level rise each century, which means that the place we are staying in on the wharf in Auckland will be underwater in a few centuries and the New Zealand fashion week shoe (see picture) will have to be a welly boot.
