Siemens Supports Climate Science Gallery at the Science Museum

. March 22, 2010

The Science Museum, London, has today announced details of a new climate science gallery and supporting programme of events which will provide up-to-date, accurate information about the science of climate change.

Andreas J Goss, Chief Executive, Siemens plc said:

“Siemens is delighted to be a principal sponsor to this important climate science gallery. Climate change is the most serious challenge facing us all and it is imperative that young people in particular are inspired to engage in how we as a society adapt to a low-carbon world.”

“Siemens is a leading company providing innovative environmental infrastructure solutions. Last year globally our customers reduced their CO2 emissions by 210 million tonnes using products and services from our environmental portfolio, said Goss. “That’s the equivalent of the emissions from New York, Tokyo, Berlin and London put together. This global focus on environmental care is driving innovation and investment and underlines the importance of scientific advances in combating climate change.”

“The new climate science gallery at the Science Museum promises to play a central and authoritative role in the public debate on climate change.”

Visitors to the gallery will be able to find out about the science of the climate system, how climate has changed in the past and the work that scientists do to improve their understanding of the climate. They will also be able to discover how scientists have predicted changes to our climate in the future as well as developments in science and technology to respond to these changes.

An accompanying website will provide further access to this detailed content for a much wider audience, as will an engaging and lively three year programme of public events, school and community outreach activity, educational resources, and new art works and interventions in existing Science Museum galleries.
