David Armstrong McKay

An Earth system scientist researching biosphere-climate feedbacks and tipping points in the past, present, and future, and is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Earth Resilience in the Anthropocene project at Stockholm Resilience Centre. He also blogs about climate tipping points and feedbacks at www.climatetippingpoints.info.


Douglas Nilsson

Associate Professor, with a broad interest in atmospheric environmental science, climate and earth-system science, my main focus is on sources of aerosol particles.

Fredrick s.jpg

Fredrick Schenck 

A climate researcher and one of the research area leaders at the Bolin Centre for Climate Research, Stockholm University. His main research focus is on historical to millennial climate variability, Marine Geology, ocean-atmosphere dynamics and climate. Specific research topics are extreme climate states and rapid climate shifts in response to Gulfstream instabilities, heatwaves and storminess.

Garry P.jpg

Garry Peterson

Professor, head of subject in sustainability science, and co-leader of the research stream Resilience for Transformation at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University.  He is highly involved in IPBES, a UN assessment process that aims to assess current knowledge of the condition of and possible futures of people and nature. Garry can both talk about the impacts of climate change and strategies to navigate towards a sustainable future.  He can talk about ecological tipping points, what drives them, how they impact people and how they are caused by and contribute to climate change(see: regimeshifts.org). Garry also works on creating a more sustainable world, his project ‘Seeds of a Good Anthropocene’ looks how the wide variety of sustainability solutions that already exist can combine to enable transitions towards more sustainable societies (goodanthropocenes.net).
