MIT Geo-engineering debate – 07.08.2013
This film features several of the big guns in this debate. We have not had the time to analyse in full and present our notes but the scene is set within the first few minutes by the questions:
Who thinks climate change poses a deep seated problem for civilisation?
Who also thinks that getting off fossil fuels is an extremely difficult task ?
The speaker indicates that the show of hands in favour of both statements was very high, but then appears to suggest that the general public view is not as clear-cut as that of the people present in the room. We referred to this in more detail in the introduction to this section.
We will expand on the talk notes soon hopefully.
