Edinburgh 2050 — How Will Climate Change Affect Our City? Tue 6 & Wed 7 July, 10.30am & 2.30pm What will Edinburgh look like in 2050? By then, after decades of anthropogenic climate change, there will be obvious effects of increased sea level and coastal erosion, and probably more rainfall and flooding, and rising groundwater. Meeting the Scottish Government target to reduce Scotland’s emissions of all greenhouse gases to net-zero by 2045 (at the latest) will also change Edinburgh. www.sciencefestival.co.uk/event-details/edinburgh-2050–how-will-climate-change-affect-our-city
