It will give me great pleasure to talk at Astrofest this coming Friday, 10th Feb, at 10:35am. The organisers of the conference have asked me to explain about the Sun's role in climate change on the Earth and other planets.
"It is one of the most contentious subjects in science: what is the Sun's role in climate change on Earth? Thanks to the sudden drop in sunspot numbers since 2008, we now have a way of investigating this vexing question - and solutions are being glimpsed. Also, if we look to the other planets of the Solar System, are we seeing the first hints of climate change on other worlds?"
I will also be signing copies of The Sun Kings, and The Sky's Dark Labyrinth. There will also be advance copies of The Sensorium of God, the 2nd volume in The Sky's Dark Labyrinth trilogy available on the day. My book signings will take place at the Astronomy Now stand at 11:10am on Friday, and again at the same time, same place on Saturday 11th. See you there!
The best news is that by ordering in advance from Astrofest, you can save 30% on the price of the books. Details of this great offer here.
