Dear All,

Dr John Taylor, Director-General of Office and Science & Technology, is
visiting Tyndall Centre on Thursday 31st May. He has oversight of all the
UK national R.Councils (i.e., manages the governments �1.3 billion annual
science budget), thus it is an opportunity to impress.

As part of the programme, I would like to expose him to short snapshots of
science that is being/will be conducted under Tyndall umbrella.

Would you be free and willing on this day to give a very short (7 minute +
3 minute discussion) presentation on your work? The timing and
succinctness of this are critical, and so if you agree I would propose a
rehearsal a day or two beforehand.

Tim: is rainfall in UK getting heavier?
Neil: adapting to climate change: the research challenges
Aeree: obstacles in the way of the Clean Development Mechanism
Irene: public perceptions of climate change

This would be between 12 noon and 1pm.

Many thanks. Please let me know if you can do this.

Mike
