    Dr Chris Smith (University of Leeds)

    Dr Smith will talk about what the carbon budget is, how it is calculated, and what the implications are ahead of the forthcoming global COP28 climate summit.

    Chris Smith is a research fellow in the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science at the University of Leeds.

    The meeting will be in-person at Seven Arts, 31A Harrogate Road, Leeds LS7 3PD. It will not be broadcast over Zoom.
