Weatherman Michael Fish to give public lecture at Marjon
Renowned BBC weatherman Michael Fish is giving an illustrated talk at University College Plymouth St Mark & St John (Marjon) on Tuesday 23 October at 5pm. “The ultimate weapon of mass destruction” lecture is free and open to the public.
Michael Fish passionately believes that global warming is the ultimate weapon of mass destruction. He explains: “More people will be killed by global warming than have been killed in any single human conflict. We all have a responsibility to do our bit to avoid global warming. Simple and inexpensive actions like insulating our homes and changing to low energy light bulbs will help – and will cut our power bills too.”
The lecture will touch on what happened in the Ice Age, the causes and effects of global warming and what might happen in the future. There’ll be a question and answer session after the lecture.
Principal Professor David Baker says: “We’re delighted to have such a distinguished and well known guest speaker at Marjon. Global warming is a very topical and important subject. I can’t think of anyone better qualified to talk about it than Michael Fish, Britain’s longest-serving TV weather forecaster.”
Dubbed a ‘national treasure’ by the national press, many accolades have been heaped on Michael Fish during his long career with the Met Office and the BBC. Many awards have been prestigious, others more frivolous including ‘Tie-man of the Year’ in recognition of his trade-mark fish motive ties.
In a new book due for publication later this month, Michael Fish joins forces with other weathermen to recall the most devastating storms and ferocious floods in Britain’s history. Copies of ‘Storm Force: Britain’s Wildest Weather’ are expected to be on sale at the lecture.
For more information or to reserve a place at the lecture please contact Anne Clark on 01752 636872 or email email@example.com. Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
