Polish Academy of Sciences to launch advisory team for the climate crisis


President of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN) Prof. Jerzy Duszyński has set up an advisory team on the climate crisis. Its work will be directed by Prof. Szymon Malinowski (Institute of Geophysics, University of Warsaw), atmospheric physicist, science promoter and co-creator of the “Climate science” information portal. The deputy chairman will be Prof. Jacek Piskozub (Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences), and the secretary – Dr Iwona Wagner (European Regional Center for Ecohydrology of the Polish Academy of Sciences).

The purpose of establishing the team is to provide all scientific support towards achieving climate neutrality in Poland.
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the United Nations (UN) set up the goal to reduce emissions by 45% by 2030, compared to 2010 and its total reduction by 2050.

Team members, also with the possible participation of other experts, will present the scientific views on the need to take immediate action to reduce climate change and its effects and to create an ambitious Polish climate policy.
