Lecture to outline how technology will help reduce emissions
by David Masters
February 25, 2008
A lecture to be given tomorrow in Dublin will propose ways in which technology can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The lecture is one of a series being organised by the Irish Environmental Protection Agency called ‘Technological Solutions: Grey Clouds and Silver Linings.’
The lecture is to be held at Dublin’s Alexander Hotel, and will be given by Dr. Leonard Bernstein. Dr. Bernstein is one of the chief writer’s of the Climate Change’s Fourth Assessment Synthesis Report. He will be speaking about the ways in which low-emissions technology can be best utilised.
Dr. Bernstein will argue that if the EU is to meet its environmental targets, then drastic cuts in greenhouse gas emissions are required. He will explain how current and future technologies will be able to help achieve the targets.
Future lectures in the series include ‘Gain vs Pain: Political and Economic Consequences and Options’, which will be given by Malta’s climate change ambassador, Michael Zammit Cutajar.
Ireland is currently using the technology of wind power to help reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. The Irish government recently introduced a support price for offshore energy, which is hoped will stimulate further developments.
