Dr Hugh Hunt | geoengineering isn't a bad idea

“Surely if you are going to be intervening with some risk in something where the risk is greater if you don’t intervene then let’s research the intervention!”

Welcome to Shaping The Future – From Pandemic to Climate Change. In this episode, I am speaking with Cambridge University’s Dr Hugh Hunt who is also working as part of the Centre For Climate Repair In Cambridge looking at ways to repair the climate by various interventions.

Hugh makes the point that the risks of Geoengineering are less than the risks from climate tipping points that we are facing if we don’t do it.

He also gives us an overview of the Centre For Climate Repair set-up by former UK Chief Government scientist, Sir David King, and discusses why funding on a scale to meet the enormity of the climate crisis means unconventional sources maybe be necessary.
