The Paris Agreement’s inclusion of “well below 2°C” and “pursue … 1.5°C” has catalysed activity to understand what this more ambitious objective implies for mitigation. However, there remains an almost exclusive focus on how future ‘negative emissions technologies’ (NETs) may offer a beguiling and almost free “get out of jail card”.

The academic community has barely considered delivering deep and early reductions in emissions through the rapid penetration of existing end-use technologies and profound social change. This presentation concludes with a draft vision of what an alternative mitigation agenda may comprise.

This lecture will be live-streamed and will include a 40min Q and A session. Feel free to interact with us on social media #CCLS17
