Legendary TV weatherman Michael Fish MBE will be the guest speaker at a key North Sea environmental gathering in Aberdeen.

Mr Fish is the main speaker at this year's E-Reps Forum at Aberdeen Football Club on Wednesday, October 4.The meteorologist, who appeared on the BBC for more than 40 years, will give a presentation on global warming and climate change.

In addition, companies will also be exhibiting to highlight the latest environmental products and services. The all-day event will put the spotlight on key environmental issues facing the industry with a series of seminars and interactive workshops.

The Joint Nature Conservation Committee, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, operators and service companies will present on a range of topics from workforce engagement to regulatory updates.

Michael Fish said: “I'm looking forward to returning to Aberdeen. We are facing a number of global warming and climate change issues and I hope my talk will spark debate and further discussion on a subject that is too important to ignore.”

Jill Butler-Rennie, founder and director of the E-Reps Forum, said: “The Forum provides the opportunity for all those who care about and have a vested interest in the environment, from the offshore workforce to decision-makers, influencers, HSE professionals and service providers to exchange views, identify opportunities and develop ideas.

“By doing this, we can all play a part in ensuring the offshore industry drives continual improvement and provides assurance that environmental stewardship retains its rightful place on the agenda.”

Tickets for the 9am to 4pm event at the Richard Donald Stand cost £90 plus VAT and booking fee. Tickets are also available to out-of-work energy professionals for £5 plus VAT.

Mr Fish, 73, is famous for a 1987 comment made while presenting the weather on TV - "Earlier on today, apparently, a woman rang the BBC and said she heard there was a hurricane on the way; well, if you're watching, don't worry, there isn't, but having said that, actually, the weather will become very windy, but most of the strong winds, incidentally, will be down over Spain and across into France.”

Hours later one of worst storms hit Britain. However, Mr Fish has said he was referring to a hurricane off the coast of Florida.

He said: “At the time I was pretty hacked off with all the media attention. However, it featured in the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony and has kept me in the public eye.

“Thirty years later, I'm still working two or three days a week whether it's visiting the Met Office to discuss climate change, working for the BBC, giving weekly forecasts for a weather website, or appearing in a play – Hurricane Michael – about the Great Storm of 1987. The rest of the week I'm just knackered!”
