Between 1990 and 2010, annual CO2 emissions rose from 20 to 30 gigatons. Considering the new discoveries of oil and gas, we are unlikely to run short of fossil fuels for many decades to come. To stop the rise we must cut annual emissions to 4 gigatons. Hence, we are gliding into a CO2 trap. So what might we do? To find out you will have to attend the lecture!
