LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR: The future of energy in a climate changing world

Saturday 14 March: 2:30pm - 3:30pm

Department of Engineering, Lecture Theatre 1, Trumpington Street, CB2 1PZ

We all know how nice it can be in a warm sunny greenhouse, yet science has demonstrated that our daily activities using fossil fuels for our energy use are turning planet Earth into a too cozy place too fast through our carbon dioxide emissions.

How did we get here, and why is it so hard to wean ourselves off fossil fuels? In this talk discover how we have always been children of fire, including how our very bodies have been changed by that dastardly invention. Yet now we must change our ways so that the planet does not change irretrievably fast.

Professor Simone Hochgreb, Department of Engineering asks what are the realistic pathways for saving ourselves from collapse, how much change and investment will that take, and can we still use some fire (pretty please!) for some things?
