Claire Barlow and Shaun Fitzgerald in conversation: greenhouse gas removal choices
Monday 21 September 2020, 4.00pm to 5.00pm BST
We have been polluting our planet with greenhouse gases for decades, and we need to a) stop continuing to put more gases into the atmosphere and b) undo the damage we have caused. It is like a bathtub filling with dirty water; we need to turn the taps off but we also need to drain it. Greenhouse gas removal hasn’t even started in earnest – we don’t even have a strategy for which options should be used.
We will have an ‘In Conversation’ session with Shaun Fitzgerald, who has recently joined the Centre for Climate Repair at Cambridge working with Sir David King, and Claire Barlow from the Engineering Department, bringing some manufacturing industry focus, to hear about the various options which have been devised thus far and the plans to compare their strengths and weaknesses. If we are to get serious with greenhouse gas removal, we need a strategy soon so that we can start scaling up the right options.
A recording of this session is available to watch on YouTube.
