Professor Myles Allen on BBC Radio on taking the ‘net’ in net zero seriously

May 26, 2021

Myles Allen argues it is irresponsible not to take the “net” in “net zero” seriously, because we need to stop climate change before the world stops using fossil fuels. Offsetting emissions with forestry or other nature-based solutions can help, but we can’t keep turning rocks into trees forever. So anyone using fossil fuels today has a duty to make sure that some of the money being spent on them is invested in safe and permanent alternatives to dumping carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
