‘Everybody Will be Affected by Climate Change’

In 2009, Dr Mike Hulme, Professor of Human Geography at the University of Cambridge, found himself at the centre of a media storm known as Climategate. A leak of scientists’ emails, the majority of which belonging to four scientists, including Mike Hulme, led to the integrity of research into climate change being questioned. Ten years on, Mike Hulme talks to Nigel Bovey about that time, and the present scientific research into the impact humans are having on the physical environment.

This interview with War Cry, the weekly magazine of the Salvation Army, was conducted in the summer of 2018, and published in the June 2019 issue.
