Keynote Speaker: Athanasios Koutavas:Man-made climate change is considered by many the most vexing environmental problem of our time. In this talk I will place this issue in a broader scientific context and argue that much of the anxiety surrounding it is unnecessary and counterproductive. Climate Change is a real phenomenon but must be viewed in a proper philosophical and scientific context which acknowledges that we live on a dynamic planet, where changing natural phenomena and environmental perturbations are part of the natural order.
