Mgr. Ondráš Přibyla

theoretical physicist, lecturer, mediator and consultant
founder and leader of “Fakta o klimatu” (The Climate Facts) project

Ondráš Přibyla and the team of “Fakta o klimatu” (The Facts on Climate)[1] project present scientific knowledge about climate change in a comprehensible and clear way. They collect data from professional and scientific institutions (IPCC, CHMI, NASA, Eurostat, WMO) and process attractive visual outputs: graphs, tables, maps and other overviews explaining key phenomena. Infographics can be freely used in the education system, the media, civil society organizations, companies or in political work. In this way, they make a significant contribution to education and cultivation of a reliable, factual and current knowledge-based debate on climate change.
