Dr. Myles Allen to ZERO13

Filed under:

Dr. Myles Allen, head of the Climate Dynamics group in the University of Oxford’s Physics Department, will be one of the key speakers at ZERO13 in November. His message is simple: Everyone who wants to extract or import fossil fuels should have to capture and store an increasing amount of the CO2 they emit during energy production.

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC, just released a report stating that in order to reach the 2 degree goal, the amount of emitted CO2 has to be drastically reduced. So far there have not been any radical changes in the amount of CO2 we emit, and a new report from the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI) states that 5 Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) projects were cancelled during the last 12 months and 7 were put on hold.

IPCC does not think that the amount of energy produced by fossil fuel will decrease enough to reach the goal either, which means that CCS has to be a central part of the solution to reduce CO2 emissions. Dr. Allen argues that it is up to the governments of each country to demand that those who emit CO2 in energy production and industrial processes also should be responsible for capturing and storing what they emit, which he think is more feasible than implementing a global carbon tax system. The effect on the energy prices will be manageable if one implements this demand gradually. This rule should apply to all fossil energy, because the effect on the climate is the same whether the CO2 originates from oil, gas or coal.

Dr. Myles Allen has had research fellowships at MIT and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and served on IPCC’s climate change panel, which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. His research focuses on how human and natural influences on climate contribute to climate change. Allen is a world-class speaker who explains complex issues by using his sharp sense of humor, a no-nonsense message and by using simple props and models.
