After a 2-year break, the Cambridge Climate Lecture Series is back. Professor Kevin Anderson’s lecture ‘From iniquity to integrity … there’s no hiding from carbon budgets’ is on Thursday 16 Feb 7.00–8.30 pm. This presentation will seek to lay bare the sheer scale, scope and urgency of emission cuts now required to meet our Paris climate commitments. It will conclude by offering an outline of the key characteristics delivering on such commitments needs to entail.
Kevin is professor of Energy and Climate Change at the University of Manchester and visiting professor at the Universities of Uppsala (Sweden) and Bergen (Norway). Formerly he held the position of Zennström professor (in Uppsala) and was director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research (UK). Kevin engages widely with governments, industry and civil society, and remains research active with publications in Climate policy, Nature and Science. He has a decade’s industrial experience in the petrochemical industry, is a chartered engineer and fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
