Prepare for a ripping evening of behind the scenes stories from Paul's landmark BBC documentaries and seemingly impossible challenges of his science projects and expeditions in the world's most remote and demanding regions. Paul is the man that scientists call when they have the really difficult jobs. In 30 years of science support he has never learned to say "no."

 

Paul leads Greenland Icecap crossings and first ascents on the highest mountains in the Arctic, collects ancient air from polar ice, gas samples from the active volcano in Antarctica and does anything else that science teams need. His ocean work includes diving under the Arctic sea ice to report on climate change and ten years of diving under Antarctic ice in support of groundbreaking marine science. To reveal the mysteries of our ancient seas he has dived the noxious Black Hole of Andros, deep caves of the Mediterranean and hideous ocean-surge caves of Tasmania. Bringing the wonders of the oceans to our television screens includes diving with sharks of all types and even cooking eggs on underwater thermal vents!

Paul brings fresh, authoritative insights into global issues and invites the audience to bring enquiring minds and difficult questions!

 

DC3 (Dartmouth Council on Climate Change) is hosting a student reception for Paul at the Dickey Center following his talk from 6-7pm. All students welcome.
