Techno-fixes for climate change, Professor Barry Brook



Climate change has spawned its very own science-fiction sub-genre - cli-fi - which explores techno-fixes as much as doomsday scenarios. Some of the imagined solutions are seriously off the planet, but not all techno-fixes are purely fictional.

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.
