CRU Climate Mural celebrates their 50 years of research

A 10 metre long x 1.5 metre high mural of the global temperature record has been mounted in the Debating Chamber of Norwich City Council’s City Hall. Starting at 66 Million years ago the multi-panelled painting depicts carbon dioxide concentration and temperature against a backdrop of the natural and human history of Norfolk. The mural celebrates the contribution of UEA’s Climatic Research Unit’s central role in detecting and understanding climate change past, present and future. The final panels of the mural are about the present and the future. Local schools and organisations will be invited to paint on their own blank canvas about the future that they see for Norfolk in light of global climate and environmental change.
