A panel discussion called 'Climate Change: Insight from King's' was held on 30 September 2008 in London for King's Fellows and alumni. Experts from King's discussed insights stemming from their academic research and explored the scientific, economic and political aspects of climate change.

The panel included Lord Martin Rees (President of the Royal Society and Astronomer Royal), John Young (Professor of Applied Thermodynamics), Alexander Orlov (Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, State University of New York) and Michael Grubb (Chief Economist at the UK Carbon Trust and member of the independent Committee on Climate Change).
