Executing a Scharnow turn: reconciling shipping emissions with international commitments on climate change

Jan 2013  Reconciling shipping emissions with international commitments on climate change – UK Chamber of Shipping

Presentation made at a shipping workshop, bringing together industry stakeholders with academics, representatives of the UK’s Committee on Climate Change, Lloyds Register and various experts on shipping from across the EU. The workshop explored the role of technology in delivering step-change emission reductions – both in terms of retrofit and new build – and followed the recent publication of a series of academic papers on shipping and emissions. The workshop, hosted by the UK Chamber of Shipping, was part of the University of Manchester’s High Seas project, funded through the EPSRC’s energy programme. The academic paper on which this presentation is based is available for free download at: Executing a Scharnow turn: reconciling shipping emissions with international commitments on climate change

Real Clothes for the Emperor: facing the challenges of climate change

Nov 2012  Real Clothes for the Emperor: facing the challenges of climate change
With global carbon dioxide emissions for 2011 – a year of economic recession and upheaval in the West – up by 3.2% on the 2010 figure, which itself was up 6% on 2009, we are entering uncharted waters. This seminar lays out the case for concern and, perhaps more importantly, demonstrates how the early harnessing of human will and ingenuity may still offer opportunities to deliver relatively low-carbon and climate-resilient communities.
