Nils-Axel Morner is a remarkable scientist, with 650 peer reviewed papers to his name. Long in experience but still young at heart, his energy and devotion to the scientific method has taken him all over the world studying sea level and geomorphology. A great communicator, he is a natural teacher and revels in the cut and thrust of debate. This ten minute interview covers his views on the 4th World Climate Change Conference in Rome, and touches on some of the issues and challenges in the climate debate (and the lack of it hitherto).

It’s always a privilege to spend time with Niklas. His enthusiasm and tireless efforts in the service of real science are an inspiration to all. I had to process the sound on this footage to get rid of wind noise, so forgive the slightly artificial sounding audio.

  1. Where can we get Prof Morner’s paper on Fiji sea-levels? I have always had respect for his work and no respect for those who have predicted that island in the pacific will disappear. The Tuvalu islands can not support a large population and of course want money but then the population will increase and make the situation worse (drawing water, removing trees, killing sea life with pollution etc)

  2. Ron Clutz says:

    Thanks for this important information. I have put up a synopsis of the published paper.


  3. Stephen Richards says:

    Well done Roger
