LONDON, 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
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.
