Sidmouth Science Festival - 39 ways to save the planet - Tom Heap
'Here are the ways. We must find the will'. Tom Heap lays out the various ways we can combat climate change : spreading rock dust on fields, educating girls, enhancing photosynthesis, building with wood, cooling reactors with salt and even listening to Arnold Schwarzenegger!
In his recent BBC podcast and book, '39 Ways to Save the Planet' Tom shows that there are so many fascinating climate change solutions, some craving adoption others simply needing expansion and none of them demanding a punishing change of lifestyle. This is a talk that you will leave inspired and hopeful about how humankind can use ingenuity and imagination to avert the climate crisis.
