Environmental Professionals Postulating

Since March 2017 the Environmental Professionals have been Postulating on a range of topics. From the extreme fringe of radical Environmental theory such as the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (VHEMT) and the potential for Abrupt Climate Change Leading to Near Term Human Extinction, to the more mainstream issues such as Politics, (Trump & Brexit), Climate Change and Business. Episodes are released monthly and available via iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Overcast or your other podcast provider of choice. Remember to subscribe and help the show by leaving a 5* review!

Tim Garrett is Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Utah who's research focus is the physics of clouds. Professor Garrett joins Steven to discuss his work, and model, which shows a consistent link between the global economy and climate change.

Professor Garrett's model indicates the constant requirement of 9.7 Watts to support every $1000 (adjusted to the 1990 Dollar) means it is impossible to decarbonise the economy and prevent catastrophic climate change within six decades.

Steven and Tim discuss why Jevon's Paradox supports this position and means that as we constantly strive for energy efficiency, ironically, the more energy we use.
