Chairwoman’s note:

The March talk is given by our own QNHG committee member, Richard Angwin, who serves as Al Jazeera’s weather forecaster. Who better to speak about climate change?! He will break down this complicated phenomenon and explain the pieces of the puzzle. He will also talk about how climate change affects the world over and Qatar in particular. He will conclude his talk with mitigation strategies and actions that governments are taking as well as easy solutions and actions that we can take to adopt our life-styles and help slow-down climate change.
