Realistically radical policy options | CREDS in Conversation Series

September 7, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm UTC+2

Equitably and quickly distributing the world’s limited and fast-shrinking global carbon budget is one of the critical challenges of our time. This question is addressed by the Hot or Cool Institute’s Towards a Fair Consumption Space for All report in which CREDS researchers participated.

Hosted by CREDS, this webinar features its researchers and other authors of the report speaking about options that may once have seemed radical but may now be the only alternative to climate catastrophe.

  • Dr Magnus Bengtsson will introduce the work of the Hot or Cool Institute, its commitment to 1.5°C and give an overview of the report.
  • Prof Yael Parag will talk about Personal Carbon Allowances and whether the time has come for rationing carbon.
  • Dr Yamina Saheb will discuss sufficiency as a policy response, asking ‘how much is enough’.
  • Dr Stuart Capstick will talkabout carbon rationing and the psychology of consumption.

The event will conclude with a live Q&A session with the speakers.
