Filippo Giorgi is one of the most prominent climate change researchers at the global scale. Among his many achievements, he served as vice-chair at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
Giorgi will be delivering the opening lecture of the School on Energy “Giacomo Ciamician” on June 25th, sharing with us some of the contents of his new book “Man and the Butterfly: six questions to think about to understand climate change” (currently available in Italian only with the original title “L’uomo e la farfalla“).
Is mankind the cause of global warming, or is it a natural phenomenon? Can we do something to avoid the “climate crisis”, or have we reached the non-return point? Filippo Giorgi tackles, in a simple, clear and exhaustive way these and many other questions about climate change, basing his answers on the results of the most advanced research in this field.
