Дискуссия об изменении климата

24 апреля  2019 г. тема  Научного Дискуссионного Клуба была связана с изменением климата. Данная тема вызывает большой интерес  не только у исследователей и ученых, но и простых граждан. Связано ли изменение  климата с изменением погоды  или за эти стоят более серьезные проблемы? Что нам приносит изменение климата?

Участники встречи пытались найти ответы на эти вопросы.
Модератором  встречи была Нина Нестерова, младший научный сотрудник в лаборатории полярных и субполярных геосистем сектора «Криолитогенные, биологические, энергетические и информационные ресурсы Арктики», X-BIO.

"Thank you for arranging the discussion on such an important topic as Climate Change and thanks to Nina for holding the discussion. As for me, it was fascinating to listen to the opinions of people out of my scientific circle where climate change is a usual topic. From my perspective, the discussion was curious. Also, I liked that the topic was science-based."

Elena Matyuhina:
"I would like to thank Nina for her work as a moderator. It was hard to speak very much, because of the lack of special words. But I have done my best to take part in the discussion."

Anastasia Lyovkina:
"The discussion club on the issues of global warming was a really outrageous event: excellent presentation of the topic, hot discussion on many aspects of the problem of climate change and atmosphere of constructive interdisciplinary scientific communication! I think that this form of communication and education should gain high popularity in modern universities and it is very important to develop discussion clubs on complex interdisciplinary problems in English according to the strategy of our University. Many thanks to the Impulse team for the warm atmosphere and organization of this event!"
