No place to hide: climate change and urgency

Presented by Emeritus Professor Jim Flynn, Fellow of the RSNS, Honorary Doctor of Science and recipient of the University’s Gold Medal.

There are two kinds of skeptics: climate change deniers and climate engineering deniers. The latter acknowledge the problem but the political elite will never accept what they propose; and were it accepted, it would have immoral implications for the third world. We must face the fact that climate engineering is necessary to buy time to achieve carbon-free energy and unless this is implemented soon, we will pass a point of no return.
