Come along to this lecture to hear an explanation of what is needed for us to repair our climate.

Emissions reductions are absolutely necessary if we are to have a climate which is sustainable. However, the IPCC AR6 report makes it clear that whilst emissions reductions are necessary, they are not sufficient. We will need to do more. This lecture will explain what is needed for us to repair our climate. In addition to emissions reductions we will need to take greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere; this is already needed as part of the term ‘net zero’. We will learn about the different techniques and the current research being undertaken to accelerate the development of the approaches. We will conclude with a discussion on the timescales involved, why even these measures may not be sufficient to safeguard our ecosystems, and introduce some ideas as to what may in fact be required to refreeze the Arctic.

This event is part of the Department of Engineering’s Community Open Day.
