Professor Mark Maslin, Professor of Climatology, University College London.
In the near future we face the perfect storm; where the combination of climate change and population growth is set to increase the numbers of people affected by ‘natural’ disasters. By 2030 globally we will need 50% more energy, with much of this energy generated through fossil fuels, accelerating climate change. By 2030 we will need 50% more food and 30% more water to feed our expanding population. Professor Maslin looks at these dire predictions for the future and discusses how we, as a global society, can deal with these problems and ultimately reduce society’s vulnerability and save lives.
