Winacc: Reducing population & consumption: is this the answer to climate change?

Members of Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique are invited to this talk by Dr David Knight who will explore the relationship between climate change, population growth and economic growth. This is a joint WinACC and University of Winchester event. Refreshments will be available from 6.30pm before the talk which starts at 7.00pm.

In this joint University/WinACC talk in the 'Is it the answer?' series on climate change, Dr David Knight will explore the relationship between climate change, population growth and economic growth, and what this means for interventions to reduce the human impact on our climate.

David Knight has taught a wide range of subjects in the Life and Medical Sciences for more than 40 years. He has been a research associate at Oxford and Cambridge and has co-founded three companies to commercialise different surgical devices. In addition, he has authored over 250 papers, is the inventor of 11 families of patents and has a long-standing parallel interest in the impact of energy use on the environment. David has long been convinced that the prime purpose of science should be to find ways to improve human well being and protect global ecosystems.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
