There is a lot of focus on limiting the amount of greenhouse gas that we add to the air, but could we also look at the other side of the equation and start to subtract? Join leading UK climate scientists Phil Williamson, Phil Renforth, Jo House and Naomi Vaughan as they discuss how forests, soils and mines can be used to trap greenhouse gases and help limit the impact we have on our planet.
About the speakers
Phil Williamson is the Science Coordinator for the Natural Environment Research Council's (NERC) Greenhouse Gas Removal programme.
Phil Renforth is a Lecturer in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at Cardiff University. His research is focused on using geochemical engineering to sequester carbon.
Jo House is a Reader in Environmental Science and Policy at the University of Bristol. Her science specialism is in land and climate interactions, including emissions of carbon dioxide from land use change (e.g. deforestation), climate mitigation potential from the land (e.g. afforestation, bioenergy), and implications of science for policy.
Naomi Vaughan is a Lecturer in Climate Change in the School of Environmental Science at the University of East Anglia. She is interested in the different ways global society can respond to the changing climate over a centennial timescale.
