Climate Crisis - There is no Plan A

Humankind is at a stage in which we have a good scientific understanding of the climate crisis and many technological solutions to halt and even reverse global warming

But we lack a coherent plan that bridges the gap between the scientific understanding and specific steps that governments and individuals must take to solve the climate crisis.

Mark Baldwin, Professor of Climate Science at Exeter University, will explain the fundamentals of the climate crisis, and why none of the solutions we read about in the news will actually work. Rather than individual behaviour changes, we need policy changes to stop the extraction of fossil fuels.

Welcome!
