Lecture: ‘Climate change: hope from despair?’

20 November 2019, Bangor / Wales

"The mitigation challenge posed by the Paris Agreement now demands a rapid and profound re-shaping of contemporary society. Whilst the models dominating the agenda employ evermore speculative technologies to remain ‘politically palatable’, the arithmetic of emissions must surely lead us to conclude that it is ultimately a rationing issue. Against such a backdrop, do the rapid emergence of new and vociferous groups and the heightened profile of climate change suggest the prospect of new hope?"
