Energy and climate; clearing the fog
27 November 2009
Tuesday 2 March 2010
Professor Chris Rapley (UCL Earth Sciences and Director of the Science Museum)
The talk will address the relationship between human energy use and climate change, and the pressing need to maintain our energy supplies whilst stabilising or reducing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. It will explore the technical and social options available to deal with the problem, progress to date, the outcome of the Copenhagen negotiations, and the range of possible futures that lie ahead.
