Gabrielle Walker - Antarctica

1 Jan 2012

Think Antarctica and what springs to mind? An heroic age of exploration? Iconic wildlife and otherworldly landscapes? Science on the edge and global warming? For Dr Gabrielle Walker – writer, broadcaster, climate change expert and author of Antarctica – this frozen continent conjures all of this and more; offering clues to our distant past and signposting our precarious future. Walker is a consultant to New Scientist and presented BBC 4’s Planet Under Threat. Her other books include The Hot Topic: How to Tackle Global Warming and Still Keep the Lights on. Join her as she unlocks the secrets of our most ‘mysterious continent’ in conversation with the Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion.
