Chris wins Nobel Peace Prize
Chris is delighted that Al Gore and the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change) have been recognised by the Nobel Prize Committee for their work on climate change. Since the prize is to be shared by Al Gore and the 'over 2000' scientists that have contributed to the work of the IPCC, Chris reckons his contribution is about 0.002%. The $1.5 million prize money is going to the IPCC and will enable more research and education on climate change.
Chris' most high profile contribution to the climate change debate was published in Nature in January 2004. He is currently working at the University of York on climate change, conservation and butterfly ecology.
