Australien Academy of Science: Public Speaker Series. Techno-fixes for climate change

„Professor Barry Brook will square up to the mounting problems of climate change, pollution, energy security and dwindling supplies – and the need for a near-total transformation of the world’s energy systems. He says next-generation nuclear technologies offer the best chance of curing our hydrocarbon addiction. These and ‘techno-fixes’ such as geoengineering, genetically modified organisms and nanotechnology can avoid destructive overuse of natural and agricultural landscapes and reduce our footprint by sparing land and resources.“
