Decarbonisation and recarbonisation: Understanding the net zero challenge

In this online lecture, author, broadcaster and Founder Director of Forum for the Future, Jonathon Porritt, discusses decarbonisation and recarbonisation, and how securing a stable climate for the future of humankind depends as much on recarbonising natural systems, as it does on decarbonising our industrial economy.

The lecture is an excellent overview of what is needed to reduce climate-heating gases, and the relative impacts of difference approaches. Jonathon highlights the potential of nature solutions to remove carbon from the atmosphere and store it in soils and other locations, a dimension that isn’t given as much attention as technological ‘fixes’.

The lecture, hosted by the Institute for Policy Research, University of Bath,  took place on 24th February 2021. You can listen to the podcast or watch the video
