Meeting the climate challenge: Is a low carbon energy future possible?
19 Aug 2013
Public debate on 5 September 2013 (6-8pm) in Renold Building.
You are invited to a public debate on how we can meet the challenge of climate change – undoubtedly one of the major problems faced by our nation and the world.
There are complex technical, economic, social and political issues that bear on this and a panel of experts has been assembled from industry, local government and academia, whose knowledge covers all these aspects.
Representatives from The University of Manchester will include Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change, and Dr David North, Director of the Centre of Sustainable Consumption.
Each panel member will give a short presentation and afterwards there will be a public question and answer session. Fracking, transport policy, the viability of carbon capture and storage and many other issues are up for discussion!
A reception will be held after the event in which discussion can continue to flow.
