Super Emissions: Radical Ideas to Close the Climate Gap
Date: Thursday, March 3
Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Format: Panel Discussion
To effectively tackle Climate Change will require disruptive global thinking. Capping temperature rise to no more than 2 degrees calls out for innovative and powerfully creative new technologies. This interactive session explores the fusing together of diverse disciplines to generate radical new ideas, and catalyze action to mitigate “super emissions”. These are the combined total of uncontrollable emissions from natural feedback loops (especially permafrost thaw), and the anticipated Gap between most likely outcome of COP21 and the desirable Carbon Budget. The focus is to ‘break down the silos’ between behavioral and technological carbon solutions, and instead make change more impactful by integrating technology quantum leaps, with change theory, societal behavior analysis, new policy paradigms and business leadership.
The session is based on the Clean Energy Research Centre Climate Opportunity project, or CERCCO.
